I found this online and I loved it and think all students should see this and understand what it means. I have seen it before, but I don't know who the original writer is:
"The capacity to learn is a gift; the ability to learn is a skill; the WILLINGNESS to learn is a choice.."
How many of our students forget that they have to put in effort to learn, not just sit in class. Every student can learn. Every student learns in a different way and not all students will be great in every subject, but they can all learn something if they try.
UPDATE: Thanks to Twitter, I was pointed to the original source of this quote:
