I recently saw this short poem from one of my favourite musicians shared on facebook.
Instantly I thought it were perfect for a number of my students. They are set 1 but are complacent with just doing well. I want them to want to excell. Therefore I decided to use it as a motivational classroom poster, I didn’t ask permission but I hoped David McWane wouldn’t mind (if you do just let me know).
You can see more of David McWane’s work here http://davidmcwane.com. I highly recommend his book The Modern American Gypsy or The Gypsy Mile.
