Valerie Jarrett talks about her favorite teacher – her mother.


– PRESIDENT OBAMA
AND SECRETARY DUNCAN ARE ABSOLUTELY COMMITTED
TO IMPROVING THE QUALITY OF EDUCATION
FOR OUR NATION’S CHILDREN. THE BEST WAY
THAT WE CAN DO THAT IS TO RECRUIT
EXCELLENT TEACHERS WHO ARE COMMITTED
TO HELPING OUR CHILDREN LEARN. MY MOM WAS PERHAPS
MY BEST TEACHER. SHE SAID, “THROUGHOUT
THE COURSE OF YOUR LIFE, “YOU’RE GONNA HAVE MANY CHOICES
OF THE PATHS THAT YOU TAKE. “DON’T TAKE THE EASY PATH. “TAKE THE ONE
THAT’S GONNA CHALLENGE “AND THAT’S GONNA
PUSH YOU TO IMPROVE EACH AND EVERY DAY.” ONE OF THE REASONS WHY WE’RE
HERE IN THE WHITE HOUSE IS THAT WE WEREN’T AFRAID TO SET OUR DREAMS
AND OUR EXPECTATIONS VERY, VERY HIGH. IF YOU FALL A LITTLE SHORT,
THAT’S OKAY, BUT AIM HIGH. INVEST IN OUR FUTURE. INSPIRE A CHILD.
