Rigor is creating an environment in which each student is expected to learn at high levels,
each student is supported so he or she can learn at high levels,
and each student demonstrates learning at high levels (Blackburn, 2008).

How much does perspective matter?

During my sabbatical, I've spent some time with a variety of people, and one thing I am sure of--your perspective matters.  One young lady is always morose, and despite a variety of opportunities offered to her, she is always complaining that everyone is against her.  She begins her day believing it's going to be a bad day, and it always comes true.  On the other hand, I have a friend who takes on new challenges regularly, and believes that she can learn from anything.  She is optimistic, and is usually correct.  How does your perspective matter?
