John Wooden posted the following note on the Bruin's bulletin board on the values of the choices we make:
There is a choice you have to make,
In everything you do.
So keep in mind that in the end,
The choice you make makes you.
The world of today's adolescent is wrought with choices, some good and some not so good. Definitely more choices than most of us grew up with. But, with these choices comes the consequences of the path chosen.
One of the most valuble skills we can provide for our students is the ability to see the effects of choice.
The choices students make today will serve them only if they understand that the greatest ability is in the ability to see ahead of the curve and look to a future where change is the norm and the skillsets for success are the ability to think critically, communicate effectively and work collaboratively.
