Perseverance is an important character trait. It means having enough self control and drive to keep trying; without it we would give up too easily and not grow to reach our potential. It is not easy to persevere when things are difficult – perhaps your school work is difficult, or a friendship you’re trying to maintain is difficult, or you want to do a particular activity but it’s difficult. There are lots of things in our lives that are hard and having perseverance means you accept that it’s hard but you keep on trying.

About the Author

I was born in England but, because of my father's work, lived in many different countries as I grew up (India, Scotland, Romania, former Yugoslavia, and Portugal). I married a sailor and kept on traveling! I worked as a Personnel Manager for a few years, then, after having children, I trained as a teacher. I have taught at Edgewood since 1998 - 3rd grade, 4th grade and 5th grade.
