Goal 10: Plant a Seed of Belief #30Goals

Goal 10 of The 30 Goals Challenge 2011


Short-term– Brainstorm how you can show the students in your school who have no belief in themselves that you believe in them. Brainstorm how you can show the students in your classes your belief in them.
Long-term– Implement this idea by the end of next week.


“If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”

~ Matthew 17:20
