The only teacher I ever had that came close to the
"after-school-special-care-so-much-it-changes-your-life" mentor, was a
college psych professor.
He said he wanted his life to be like a great novel...an epic myth. Great
stories are not always sunshine and smiles. There is conflict and pain in
them, too. Great characters experience triumph *and* despair. "I'd like
my story to be one worth reading" he said.
That idea often helps me through the tough times.
