Jewish Values on Building Persistence – CLICK TO COMMENT

By Michael Rosolio Coming into junior year, I knew that math was going to be a challenge. I was never exceptionally strong at math. Trigonometry is the most failed math regent. Putting all this aside, I went into this year with a positive attitude.
My first math test was approaching and I didn’t feel confident at all. I practiced a little bit but not enough to actually succeed. I took the test and was sure I didn’t get over an 80. I received the test back and I got a 78. I was very upset because I was not used to getting this low. I called my tutor immediately to come review the test with me. I had made up all my homework and now I knew the material. I learned I must always call the tutor before the test.
