“Aut inveniam viam aut faciam,” which in Latin translates to, “I shall either find a way or make one.” I read those words the other day and immediately thought it was a beautiful expression of an incredibly important facet of what is at the core of being a teacher. Isn’t it?! Every day you walk into a classroom or rehearsal hall (or maybe storage closet or boiler room) and do just that. Really, truly, amazingly, that is what you do. Think about how often you see a problem and know exactly what to do to solve it. But even more astounding are the times you don’t know of a solution, so you create one. And that, my friends, is what makes you a teacher.

Dr. Boonshaft – I have had one heck of a year. I have felt like anything that can go wrong, has. The past week I’ve been discussing with my husband and friends ways to not develop a “fatalist” attitude towards my job. I DO NOT want to be that person. I’ve always been a positive educator who put’s students best interest first. This blog is exactly what I needed! I have printed this saying and posted it in my classroom, band room and office. Thank you so much for all of your blogs and words of wit and wisdom.
