My students are currently preparing for state-wide testing we call the CRCT. This test, the Criterion-Referenced Competency Test, is set over five days and is administered to some elementary school students all the way through high school. With the increase of standardized tests to measure student success, it is sometimes easy to not spend as much time reminding students of what it takes to be a successful and productive member of society. We must remember to take them beyond being able to show what they know in tests and other assessments to continue pursuing their dreams and whatever makes them happy. Thus, below are some great quotes from the ever-so-wise Eleanor Roosevelt:
- “Life was meant to be lived, and curiosity must be kept alive. One must never, for whatever reason, turn his back on life.” ~ Eleanor Roosevelt
- “With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts.” ~ Eleanor Roosevelt
- “Life is what you make it. Always has been, always will be.” ~ Eleanor Roosevelt
- “Do not stop thinking of life as an adventure. You have no security unless you can live bravely, excitingly, imaginatively; unless you can choose a challenge instead of competence.” ~ Eleanor Roosevelt
- “Happiness is not a goal…it’s a by-product of a life well lived.” ~ Eleanor Roosevelt
- “What could we accomplish if we knew we could not fail?” ~ Eleanor Roosevelt
Keep living, keep being inspired, and keep taking everything as it comes!
