Just when you think a person is down and out, something will happen to give him a new lease on life. That is what I believe to be the very message of this poem.
It is not hard to see why a person would see the theme of resiliency in this poem.

In this context, teacher development activities are the priority, since no educational changes is likely to be affected in a common classroom, unless relevant technical and pedagogical training takes place. While it is certainly true that the programs targeted at teacher professional development are to include all members of the schools staff, each of whom will be making a contribution to the implementation of necessary changes, this paper focuses on site-based professional development practices and models for teachers.
Other new features are such as increased background information focusing the historical effects on discipline and how past efforts have influenced present approaches to discipline. The book looks at 18 models that can be used to enhance school discipline.
