“If you think I’m going to cop out, you’re wrong,” he said to them with a serious face. “My passion in life is teaching and this is my calling.

No sir, not today and not this year. If you think you can get me to leave, try it. I bet you’ll fail.”

The kids were impressed, but it would still take more effort to gain their trust.
