Talent “As a young teacher I would become excited whenever I started teaching bright quick learners. I would agree with the happy parents that their child was unusually talented and progressing beyond his peers. Then to my disappointment the student would become bored and suddenly quit his lessons. I noticed other “slower” students continuing on – faithfully improving and reaching a proficiency that would last for a lifetime. I learned that talent is a simple equation: hours of effort = level of talent.” Joanne Jolee
