SHE MAKES GREAT MISTAKES

She is thriving in Science and crushing Honors Algebra. But while other girls’ poster projects look magazine-ready, hers looks plain. The 7th Grader meets with her Graphic Design teacher after MSHR and the woman gently challenges her. You make GREAT mistakes. Don’t quit. The teacher points to the student’s Japanese 1A books and encourages her to seek inspiration in Japanese calligraphy. Think BIG. With those words, the girl’s mind opens and her eyes light up. Ideas blossom. I can do this. More than Principles of Design, she is learning Principles of Perseverance. These principles will endure for the rest of her life.
