What Students Really Need to Hear

 (and how I approach teaching...) 

 As long as you are in my life, I am not going to let quitting be easy for you.

I am going to challenge you, confront you, push you, and coach you.

You can whine.  You can throw a tantrum.

 You can shout and swear and stomp and cry.

And the next day, guess what?


I will be here waiting — smiling and patient — to give you a fresh start.

Because you are worth it.


So, do yourself a favor: Step up.  No more excuses.

 No more justifications.

 No blaming. No quitting.  

Just pick your head up. 

 Grab the frickin’ pencil and let’s do this.  –C. Mielke  

We will be reading "The Best School Year Ever" by Barabara Robinson to start of our year!
