It's time for the second edition of Friday Feels...what's on my mind this week? Classroom management and classroom culture!
Whenever possible, even when disciplining, speak words of affirmation. We hold the precious minds and hearts of our children in our hands. Every one of us undoubtedly has a teacher who spoke words of affirmation and encouragement...we probably even remember those words to this day. In fact, that teacher is probably the reason we became teachers. But conversely, we all have that one teacher for whom nothing was good enough, who tore us down, who we dreaded seeing everyday. Which teacher are you?
