MAY THE BIRTH OF THE CHRIST CHILD REMIND US THAT THERE CAN BE HOPE, PEACE, JOY AND LOVE ACROSS THE WORLD.
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL.

I've come to the frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element in the classroom. It's my daily mood that makes the weather. As a teacher, I possess a tremendous power to make a child's life miserable or joyous. I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration. I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal. In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis will be escalated or de-escalated and a child humanized or de-humanized.”
