  • You may have to develop new skills out of your repertoire to reach kids.
  • Every type of boy can be reached.
  • When a teacher reaches their end of their rope, they need to reach out for their help.
  • You recognize that this is really challenging and it is frustrating. You have the power to change this boy’s life, and I know it is hard, If you can bear with him and continue to check in with him, you can reach him.
