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.

Adrian Bruce has kindly made up these little positive reinforcements for teachers to use with their students’ blogs. These would have been great to use with my class last year when I was doing this!!!
