Say Hey

The first day back was just fine. The kids seemed pleased to see me and each other.

I showed the 4th hour class the giant stack of papers I graded on my vacation. "I graded this many papers," I said. "Isn't that good? I worked hard on them, and now I'd like some praise and encouragement."

The class went ahead and applauded and cheered. That felt good.

Good job, class! And good job, you!!!

Glad you're making them appreciate you!

Dan said some of his 8th graders looked older.

I like that attitude. Keep it up. That should be one of your professional goals. Continue to help the children appreciate you.
