My classroom is not a quiet, orderly place.
Students are constantly moving, thinking, talking, reading and writing.
I do my best to help my students find success.

Balance

A frown.  A smile.  A complaint.  A compliment.
A sarcastic remark.  A postive comment.
Finding balance can be hard when you spend time with children.
Children can bring out the worst in some of us, but they should bring out the best in all of us.  Children are always learning because of how observant they are.  Children learn how to act by watching others.
We are the adults.  We are their role models.

  1. This is so powerful. Can we forward it in an email? Make copies to hand out? Post it on the bathroom wall?

    And as we continue to remind ourselves lately: they are KIDS! What more can we expect? Especially when they see the imbalance of the best and the worst.

    Thanks for the reminder. We ARE their role models. Now, let's figure out how we can remind others . . .
