Quotes on Children1-5 Quotations of 309
I've come to the frightening conclusioin that I am the decisive element in the classroom. 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 child humanized or de-humanized.

I'm not looking for popularity -- I've never looked for popularity. I'm just looking for happiness and success, and I teach that to other people. Why would I want to be on the front page? To be more popular? That doesn't thrill me. It doesn't mean anything to me. While I'm busy trying to get my picture in the paper, I could be doing something meaningful.
