Be the Change Before Can See the Change

Good Morning Most Awesome and Wonderful World Changers! As I was teaching yesterday, I noticed my kindergarteners were really not following the rule about raising your hand to talk to me. They are just comfortable around where they we can have dialogue. Oh yeah! By the way, I found out calling someone baby is a bad word! LOL ! Anyway. . . Back to not raising hands. The old Mr. Demby would say, ” Demby you gotta have these children for the next 5 years so let them have it! ” I would’ve yelled and made them very afraid to break a rule in my room. However this time, I sang a low operatic bass note, and simply said “Babies if you have something to what do we do when we’re at school”? I’ve learned through the years that anger normally breeds more anger. And that’s what a lot our schools have become. Last year after experiencing things thrown across my room by angry students and posters ripped off the wall by angry students; I decided then I needed to change.

Do we have to demonize someone because they don’t conform to our way of doing things? How can we still accomplish the same goals, but let them be who they are? Is a child laying down reading or standing up reading so bad? These are questions I ask myself as I am changing to love and understanding rather than anger and criticism.

Daily Affirmations: Today is a Most Wonderful Awesome Day. I choose to move forward with joy and ease. I release the need to control others. I truly love and respect myself. I trust Life to bring me my highest good. I am healthy wealthy whole and complete. ALL IS WELL IN MY CLASSROOM. ALL IS WELL IN MY SCHOOL. ALL IS WELL IN MY WORLD. ALL IS WELL AND I AM SAFE. #IBlessMyWorldWithLove
