what you say,
but they
won’t forget
how you
make them feel.
• Tell me…I’ll forget.
• Show me..I’ll remember.

I’ll understand.

Care more than others think is wise.
Risk more than others think is safe.
Dream more than others think is practical.
Expect more than others think is possible.

Remember that each day, for one or more of
the students you teach, school is the easiest
thing they have to do....We do not
know what they must go through just to be
sitting in your classroom....For many of our
students, school is the refuge, the only place
that they know they are safe.

understand concepts
that you will keep for

“Do not be afraid
or timid about
responding, ‘I don’t
know’ to a
question. But do all
you can to find
and relay the
answer. You will
gain your students’
respect.”

—
begin with what
students know.”

Marketing Tips—from Psi State Break Out Meeting:
Thanks to Beta Rho and Eta Chapter Presenters
• Market your chapter: sell chapter t-shirts and
have sisters wear them on the same work day—
ready to give their elevator speeches.
• Order a chapter sign and post it in the teacher’s
workroom or lounge on meeting days.
• Prepare a display board for the same
workroom—highlight chapter programs,
scholarship opportunities, the sharing of a
spiritual fellowship, the sharing of valuable
knowledge.
• Get the buzz out about your chapter—local
newspapers, placing chapter newsletter or DKG
materials in lounges of schools (get activities
published, events, honors for sisters out there for
all to see).
• Develop
a clear chapter purpose: “Alpha Rho provides
new books for all newborns in the county, dictionaries for
3rd grade classrooms, and the International Emergency
Fund.”
• Ask each sister to bring in a list of six potential new
members.
• Spend a meeting coming up with TALKING POINTS
about your chapter.
Consider these elements for talking points:
--your length in chapter
--personal benefits of membership
--international organization with chapters in 18 countries
--chances for state and international scholarships
--particular projects of your chapter
--your favorite meeting last year
--number of meetings and dues for the year
Remind the sisters (again thanks to Beta Rho and
Eta):
• You were chosen by someone as an exemplary
female educator.
• Someone saw something in you—your work,
your standards, your success with students, your
cooperative attitudes, your potential.
• Someone sponsored you.
• Now, you can return the favor—honor someone
else.

Think outside box!
•Share your chapter’s strengths: what sisters
know about the Varied Brain, Action
Research, Power of Reflective Teaching
•Survey to see what young career educators
want to learn—for their classrooms or evening
hours (bridge, Bunco, crochet, cross-stitch,
technology, scrapbooking, sweet rolls)
