It’s okay to have faith. Given the number of words you just spent bragging about your kids, you have lots of justification.

Dad would have loved teaching your students. He used to brag on his kids who were there to actually learn something instead of just looking for something to do until they were old enough to be tried as adults. But the ones he bragged on the most were the ones who came in with two strikes against them already, discouraged and convinced they couldn’t do it, but who found their groove and graduated with a C average. Those kids gained the most ground, both in their trade and in their confidence, and he loved watching it happen. He never took credit for it. He said he was just doing his job to put them in a position to learn, which he did for all his students. The only difference was some of them accepted the challenge and others turned their backs on it.

Sounds like all your kids accepted the challenge. I’ll bet real money your enthusiasm for the material influenced that.

I am certain you didn’t post it to receive kudos but woven throughout is the shining message from the kids that you inspire and educate. Well done!
