I AM THE DECISIVE ELEMENT IN THE CLASSROOM.
It’s my personal approach that creates the CLIMATE.
It’s my daily mood that makes the weather.
As a teacher, I POSSES A TREMENDOUS POWER to make a child’s like miserable or joyous.
I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration.
I can humiliate or heal.
In all situations, it is my response that decides wether a child in crisis with be escalated or de-escalated and a child humanized or dehumanized.
