Thank you for trusting us with your time and energy. We know you’re busy and work hard as a teacher. But as one of our P.D. attendees once said, “What do I teach? I teach students. I teach children.” We hope this P.D. session and these resources help your students, but even more, help you with self-care so that you can model for your students the importance of loving and caring for yourself.
Ideas to help with Morning Greetings:
Ideas for the Calming Corner
“Establishing BOUNDARIES is self-care”
“What do you teach?” “I teach students. I TEACH CHILDREN. That’s the correct answer.”
“When I have to discipline a student, I always make sure I say ‘I STILL LIKE YOU.'”
“I keep a ‘SHARE BUCKET‘ where students can write down and share problems anonymously and/or personally. This helps me be more aware of what might be distracting them emotionally.”
