One of our past discussion points stated, “as the teacher I am truly in charge of the ship, high and low points truly come as a result of my actions or lack of actions.”
This reminded me of one of my favorite poems. I would love to hear your thoughts.

“I’ve come to a frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element in the classroom. It’s my personal approach that creates the climate. 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 heal. In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis will be escalated or de-escalated and a child humanized or dehumanized.”
