Teachers need to make sure that students have self-confidence! If a student is having trouble in math or having trouble reading a story, do not let the child bring him or herself down. If a child feels they cannot do something, it will become a self-fulfilling prophecy. Students need to know that they can do anything if they try hard enough. I have seen teachers tell students to not worry about a certain subject because they will never understand it anyway. Those teachers should be fired. Every child has so much potential and a teacher is suppose to unleash this potential not destroy it. Keep this in mind next time a student says they cannot do something.
