The Decisive Element

By , Thursday, 14th April, 2016

“I have come to the frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element. It is my personal approach that creates the climate. It is my daily mood that makes the weather. I possess tremendous power to make life miserable or joyous. I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration, I can humiliate or humour, hurt or heal. In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis is escalated or de-escalated, and a person is humanised or de-humanised. If we treat people as they are, we make them worse. If we treat people as they ought to be, we help them become what they are capable of becoming.”

Haim Ginott, from the book Teacher and Child.

But seriously, the following quote came from @Aaron_Eyler via Twitter #edchat hashtag.

The best indicator of classroom management might even be what the kids do the days you AREN’T in school.

I know I love it when I return to my class to find reports that they’ve been wonderful and got through everything I planned for them.

What do you think? Is it an accurate measure of your classroom management?
