Beginning the school year!

I've come to the 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 humor, hurt or heal.
In all situations, it is my response
that decides whether
a crisis will be escalated or de-escalated
and a student humanized or dehumanized.

Dr. Haim Ginott
