The frightening conclusion

3 Jul

I have come to the frightening conclusion that I AM the decisive element in the classroom. Its 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 be humiliate or humour, hurt or heal.

In all situations it is my response that decides whether a crisis will be escalated or de-escalated and a child humanised or dehumanised.
