    I engage and stay engaged in class work and communicate with my teachers when I am unable to work.

    I am patient while waiting for help from my teachers, staff, and other students.

    I attempt to solve problems and deal with setbacks and frustrations instead of quitting.

    I recognize my own successes and believe I will continue to grow.

    I can follow through with the school day even if I am not feeling my best and want to go home.

    I attend school every day and push myself to attend even when I am tempted not to show up at school.

    I am patient when working with school staff, volunteers, students, and other teachers.

    I attend my internship or pre-internship each day, even when I am not motivated to attend.

    I participate in All-School Fieldwork activities.

    I cooperate with community expectations and work collaboratively and patiently to work out issues with the Community Liaison Team and community members.
