  6. Right on, Mitch! Every teacher ought to have this hanging on their wall. Wait, make that every adult! My father, a high school math teacher, knew how to bring out the best in teenagers that others had labeled lost causes. As a former rebel himself, he understood that non-conformists often make the best leaders.
