STRENGTH is our final STRIDES characteristic.

  • "Welcome to May! ​STRENGTH is our final STRIDES characteristic. ​How appropriate! We have all had to and continue to muster strength over the last month and a half. Oftentimes, when people hear the word strength, they automatically think of the physical - one's muscles. However, strength is so much more. Yes, it is physical, but it is also mental, emotional, social and academic. Strength is perseverance. It is persistence. It is resilience. It is fortitude. It is grit. It is power. It is necessary.

    "What else is strength? It is difficult. Sarah Plumatallo, an educator, insightfully notes ​"This trait is hard. It's hard on purpose. When we persevere, we grow. But that growth is often painful and accompanied by so many opportunities for an out. What comes easy for some seems near impossible to others. Displaying [strength] and perseverance is hard, but it is important because it is an indicator of future success. To persevere, even in the small moments is to persevere over the long-term...it is striving for excellence in the face of adversity, and never giving up on a goal."
