Dr. Seuss - Happy Birthday to You!
"That teacher wanted me to draw the world as it is," Ted said, "and I wanted to draw things as I saw them."
Ted rejected his art teacher's advice not to pursue art as a career. He resolved right then and there to be an artist someday.
Even though he was shy, uncoordinated, and had a unique sense of humor, his stubbornness is what pushed him into the spotlight.
What does an artist look like? He may not be the pretty one, the graceful one, or the evident genius.
He may be the one you least expect to succeed because he follows the beat of a different drummer. Listen for that offbeat, and pay closer attention to the drummer.
Encourage the artistic soul discovered in your students.
Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!
