To be a Black Belt in the martial arts you must train every day. You must practice the basics over and over and over. Soon you develop the habit of training.
And let’s not forget the teacher. Frazzled and flummoxed, he stands beside his desk and holds his hands before him. “Calm down, class,” he says. His voice quivers with a combination of annoyance and alarm. He looks as if he has been cornered by a rabid dog.

As a teacher you have to figure out a way to reach ’em and teach ’em.
