Today's quote comes from a person named Haim Ginott. I will write about it here in a few days time, but until then, here's the quote:
"It is my personal approach that creates the climate. It is my daily mood that makes the weather...I possess tremendous power to make a child's life miserable or joyous. I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal. In all situations, it is my response that decides whether the crisis will be escalated or deescalated and a child humanized or dehumanized."
Unfortunately I can't find any information on this person (nor picture) anywhere; but this quote is now hanging in my office area and every center I work out will have this posted in their staff area. This is a great reminder to teachers of what we do.

I found this quote so great and so defining for my work. I love my job and what I do. If all I made was just enough for a roof over my head and food, I would be greatly please with it. I don't know that many people could say that.

I hope I fall into the first category, but I have a sneaking suspicion that I fall into the second.
