"If someone has no natural ability to be a teacher, there is no training in the world that will make that person a success in the classroom. However, those who have a modicum of natural teaching ability can improve their teaching in a multitude of ways that all, at the core, involve a lot of hard work and dedication to the goal of creating those moments where the spark of recognition in a student's face signals 'mission accomplished.'"
