Instructors and Their Jobs

Something to Consider
I’ve come to the frightening conclusion that I am
the decisive element in the classroom. It’s my
personal approach that creates the climate. It’s
my daily mood that makes the weather. As a
teacher, I possess a tremendous power to make
a child’s life miserable or joyous. I can be a tool
of torture or an instrument of inspiration. I can
humiliate or humor, hurt or heal. In all situations,
it is my response that decides whether a crisis
will be escalated or de-escalated and a child
humanized or de-humanized.
