The true value in achievement can only be measured by the level of struggle in attaining it.16 Jan 2015/by Alan Malizia/0 Comments/in Inspirational Quotes Topics: Adversity, Success
I am a retired Catholic School teacher for the Diocese of Bridgeport in Connecticut. I taught mathematics at the secondary level and coached varsity girls volleyball, as well as other high school sports. During my tenure as head coach our volleyball teams won four class-S state championships. I was named Coach of the Year in that sport in 1988, and inducted into the Connecticut Women's Hall of Fame in 2007, as a scholastic coach. I have written two books, one published in 2005, titled The Little Red Chair, an autobiography of my life experience with polio, and A View From The Quiet Corner, a book of original poems and reflections, published in 2009. I am presently a co-author for the bestselling book series by David Mezzapelle, Contagious Optimism, which contains the real life stories from everyday folks who have, through the use of forward positive thinking, overcome trials in their lives.
