So, what if you had a hundred kids? No one has that many, right? One thing is true: ask any teacher about her students, and she’ll refer to them as her kids.

Look, the obstacles are there — bureaucracy, long hours, lack of funding … the list goes on. But coach Ryan Murtfeldt wants us to realize that the bad moments are just as valuable as the good ones.

Hard times help us develop the authentic wisdom and skills we need to thrive.
