Webster defines Effective as
adequate to accomplish a purpose.
What if I don't feel adequate?
Another definition of effective
that I do feel like I can pull off is,
prepared and available for service.
I can do that.
But I need 2 things in place before
I can be prepared and available for service.

If you believe that your student has the ability to learn,
you can stay the course!
Do your job ~ Be Effective
