We do the best we can with what we have. Prior knowledge is the basis of all new learning. We learn best what we teach. Teaching is more than a job. It is a calling. The only real failure is the failure to try. Perseverance is 99 percent of the game of life. A teacher's job is to program students for success. We can't expect people to display behaviors they have never been taught.
