### Congratulations-- What's next?

Congratulations on completing your AP Calculus exam!! That is quite an accomplishment!!! When you look back on the process, did you surprise yourself? Did you take some time to celebrate?

After celebrating, was your first thought "What's next?"

What will be the next immediate challenge? Isn't that the incredible part of living? That once you complete one challenge, another awaits. More hard work, more frustration, more hard work, always something.

Below is one of my favorite quotes (when I was teaching, we began each class with a quote; often ones that my students suggested; we felt each one captured something essential about living and life) ; Ara shared some of hers and since I've lived my life by a quote as you'll find in a future posting, I'll continue with this one here:

"Every day you may make progress. Every step may be fruitful. Yet there will stretch out before you an ever-lengthening, ever-ascending, ever-improving path. You know you will never get to the end of the journey. But this, so far from discouraging, only adds to the joy and glory of the climb." --Sir Winston Churchill

Your climb has just begun! Your AP exam was one great step!! What's next?
