ms. lisa's musings & mayhems

“I have come to a frightening conclusion. I am the decisive element in the classroom. It is my personal approach that crates the climate. It is my daily mood that makes the weather. As a teacher I possess 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.”
— Dr. Haim Ginott, Author,  Between Teacher and Child
