    To all teachers and educators out there, what advice would YOU give to students that aren't A

    nor honor students?  Would YOU inform such students that they have no bright future or inform them that despite their lackluster academic performance, they would have a hopeful future? This is referring to students with an I.Q. of 110 and above.

    My husband did mediocre in High School entered college late in his 20's working and going to classes got his Bachelors. Drove cabs got his Masters in Music History and has been working in the Library of Congress making over 100k. I was an almost straight A student. my parents paid for my Bachelors and Masters. Went to one of the top 5 schools for music and worked a fulfilling job as a teacher making half that.  What's important is you try your hardest and love what you do not the grades.

    I'm not a teacher but I would tell a child to do you best in school and when you're done find something that you (love) doing.
    If you become an "expert" at it no matter what it is you can either start a business or be a highly paid consultant.
    I would do my best to avoid being a "Dream Killer" or planting a negative seed in a child's mind that could stay with them for life.
    In a free society there are multiple paths to success and reaching one's dreams. Sometimes you win and sometimes you learn.
    I would not tell an average student they're doomed to mediocrity.
    The most important thing is getting in the habit of doing your best!
    That's all any of us can ask of ourselves and of each other.
    Too many other factors come into play regarding success such as networking, appearance, personality, and timing. Never give up!

    Simply find some career or area that is indeed interesting to you and become tenacious at achieving all that is necessary to "spend your time" doing that, (the thing you truly love). Rather than being miserable and wasting your precious time doing something you don't love!
    If you can't pull your GPA up in high school you better "get er done" in college even though since you didn't get it (your GPA) up in high school you will probably have to spend more money for the degree.
    When one enters college if you haven't already discovered that area of interest find it asap to minimize: (1) the number of courses you will have to complete, (2) tuition cost and (3) time dedicated...
