In the era of Marvel superheroes it is very easy to think superpowers are a necessity to make a positive impact. Our students are faced with so many pressures in today’s society and are constantly being told by mainstream media how to dress and act, and what to believe. This constant cloud of negativity hinders their ability to tap into their own extraordinary talents. The solution to this dilemma is character education.

All they have to do is to tap into their own superpower, which is embracing the person they are and the person they want to become.
