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).

Gives Me Hope, Part Five

I have a copy of a wonderful book called "Gives Me Hope: The 127 Most Inspiriting Bite-Sized Stories".  It is worth every penny!  This week, I shared five stories from the book. If you are struggling and feel defeated, read these stories, read the book, and remember that hope is still alive! 

An elderly lady came to my register and was buying milk and bread.  She didn't have enough money and had no way of paying.  There was a 12-year old boy buying a video game and a toy.  He handed me his gift card to buy her items.  He said she needs food more than he needs a video game.  He gives me hope.
