Giving Forgiveness

           Teachers---I'm hoping---begin each day with a "clean slate."  Students get a second/third/109th chance...It happens every morning at 8:45.

          I'm much less tolerant with adults.  In fact, my best friend accuses me of judging people on first impressions, and I hold onto those first impressions like a pit bull. It takes me a long time to form a different opinion, and often I do it begrudgingly.  (I guess "accusation" is not the correct term, because she's accurate.)

        Check out the Underground Teacher's blog.  Her November 11 post is a compelling one.  It speaks a message to everyone, not just teachers...

  1. Good points, Sioux. It is tough to start out with a clean slate every day. I admire the teachers who manage it. Your kids must think you're the tops!


Thanks for your comments. I appreciate you taking the time to stop by...
