44: What Makes the Young Good?

Tune in as I share a recent perspective shift based on my experience interviewing a future teacher. He shared “What Makes the Young Good” and it will surely help you pay it forward and ensure your own students reach their potential and beyond!


  • One of the quotes I live by and my dad says to me everyday what makes the young good? Its themselves. You need to make a conscious decision to show up and do the best you can.
  • I’m here for you and to support you and I care for you and its important that you go to class and get educated and seek the most potential you have.
  • Just keep seeking your best. And soon your best will be better.
  • Change your best moment into your best momentS.
