Did you have a teacher in your life whom you can credit with helping get you to where you’re at today? Did they make you frustrated, laugh, or even cry because their lessons felt like much more?
Did those teachers challenge you because they cared about you as much as you cared about them?
As a professor of small animal science for the last 10 years April is very familiar with those types of feelings. She is constantly pushing her students emotionally as much as she is academically. Remember what
“I tell my students that they have to go outside of their comfort zones in order to grow as a student and as a person.”
April then decided to reach out to Training for Warriors because in her mind there’s nothing worse than a professor that doesn’t practice what he or she preaches and pushed herself out of her own comfort zone with one simple button…
“I thought what is the worst that could happen? I won’t do it. I will let fear consume me. Been there. Done that. What do I have to lose with making this initial contact? Turns out, I didn’t lose anything but my low self-esteem (and a few digits and percentages). I was petrified when I walked into this place. I couldn’t even take a deep breath without feeling every inch of my chest tighten, Tears were imminent.”
