Be that champion every day, every one, all the time.  And if there is one child in your class that continues  to defy the law of relationships, love him/her even more pay more attention to him/her because it may be the only place he/she is told that they are amazing, that they can achieve, that they can aspire to be the very best they can be...... AND is starts with YOU, it starts…
