Trust in your classroom is such a huge thing that most teachers (I would guess) don't spend enough time teaching what it's all about.
These first 45 days are SO crucial to having a successful year, that if you don't lay the foundation down correctly, it will be a long year for all involved.
Our students are not perfect, nor is anyone, and I am lucky enough to be able to teach them to take chances, to try and get along with others, to learn as much as they can, because that's what I'M doing.
So why not let them?
I'm proud of ALL my students, and I let them know that each and every day.
Nobody said this journey was easy.
That's why I love what I do.
I hope that you do, too.
Have a great weekend, everyone, and enjoy your time with whatever you do.
