View Full Version : Teacher by Haim Ginott

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

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 or a child
humanized or de-humanized.
