    “I've come to the frightening conclusion 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.”

    Enjoying my family and friends mostly. We had our annual BigPigDig in the back yard and it was a huge success. Still recovering! What's up with ya??? I have to get to work right now, but wanted to share that. I have it framed on my desk. It's sooooo awesome.
