“Learning is in many ways a struggle with a purpose. A personal relationship with students is important and offering encouraging words and remarks go a long way in helping to bring the student into conformity with Christ and to a successful academic conclusion. Finally, I believe in fervent prayer for one’s students. Naming them before God who has the power to open the eyes of enlightenment is the highest privilege and honor that a teacher may possess.” Don Hartley, April 24, 2008
