It is important to believe that every student can succeed. If you believe it, students will realize it and work harder. When a teacher doesn't truly believe that each student can succeed in his or her class, this comes through to the students and can truly be detrimental. On a personal note, one year I told my students that I knew they could get the complicated concept I was teaching, and I continued working until I truly felt that they all got it. One student in particular came up to me after class and said, "I can't believe I understand that. Thank you." That was an awesome moment for me as a teacher.
