Some kids know the best ways to press our buttons & get beneath our skin. But remember, no matter how difficult it is or how much restraint you need, don't yell at kids... don't talk down to them... don't give them & disrespect. As educators, we model... not berate.

We need to teach students how to question & disagree with adults in a polite & respectful way. Though it’s natural to be defensive when questioned (especially by a ), it may be genuine curiosity to know more. Students also see things from a unique perspective.

Really enjoyed watching speech students doing a skit at Central Elementary for some of our students this morning. These two young ladies are wonderfully talented.

Having a good relationship with co-workers doesn’t mean agreeing on everything. Conflicts, disagreements and misunderstandings will happen. Relationships are maintained and strengthened through polite dialogue, problem-solving, and mutual respect.

Two HS students were walking in this morning & they were a few minutes late. I told them both good morning. I then asked about their weekend. Lastly, I told them both that I hope they have a great day. They didn’t need to hear they were late. They needed to be welcomed.

Telling people WHY they matter, rather than just that they matter, changes the game entirely.

Have a student you're struggling with & you're out of ideas? Try the 'two-by-ten' strategy: For two minutes each day, 10 days in a row, have a personal conversation with the about anything the student is interested in, but NO school or behavior.

Only 5% of praise statements from teacher to student are behavior specific. Move from “good job, way to go, keep it up” to specific statements that help children to know the expectation and repeat it again.

Have you ever been misunderstood? Sure, we all have. Therefore, keep in mind, the next time assume, take a moment to pause. Perhaps get clarification first, confirm, learn more, do a quick double check. It’s easy to assume the worst intent, but more often that’s not the case.

Meg fell asleep in class yesterday. I let her. I didn't take it personally. She has zero-hour math, farm-girl chores, state-qualifying 4X400 fatigue, adolescent angst, and various other things to deal with. My class is only a part of her life, not her life. No, she did not use

A3. I spent time yesterday writing “thank you” notes to staff so when we return from spring break they get the extra spark of kindness to continue to make the difference.

Shoutout to all the administrators who will cover a class so can observe colleagues, step in to help with a challenging , always have ‘a minute’ to talk, know almost all the students’ names & set the tone each day with a friendly greeting.
