Good Morning Most Awesome and Wonderful World Changers. I believe I’ve said this more than once, but as a teacher; you really can’t have “pet peeves”. That one thing that you just cannot tolerate will end up in your classroom every time. Most time it will show up in several students. It is a common fact that people in our lives are mirrors of ourselves. The people we like, exhibit the characteristics that we like about ourselves. The people we do not like, exhibit the characteristics that we do not like about ourselves. So this week we will focus on how to start releasing our pet peeves.
Step 1: Teach and Reteach When certain behaviors show up in your classroom, in order to not see it again; I stop whatever I’m doing and show the students what I expect. It’s best to do this when you’re not angry 😤. Doing this will save you from a great deal of days where you constantly focus on behavior.
1. Stop whatever you’re doing.
2. Think of ways to teach and Reteach the correct behaviors
3. Take a breath and don’t let the learner’s mistakes make you so angry that you can no longer teach.
4. Make the right choice by realizing that your pet peeve is totally your preference. Your way is not always the right way. You have no right to try and control others. Your job is to let them know of the others ways they can handle certain situations and be there to lead them as they choose.
Every person has to Stop, Think, and Breathe and Make the Right Choice for themselves.
Daily Affirmations: Today is an Awesome day. I choose to feel good about myself. I release the need to control others. I instead choose to love and approve of every part of myself.

ALL IS WELL AND I AM SAFE. #IBlessMyWorldWithLove
