I’m sure we’ve all encountered situations when we’ve observed a parent raising their voice at their child, or you’ve tried to soothe a student that was sad from being yelled at by his/her parents before school. I wonder how many of our students come to school upset, repeating messages to themselves that they’ve heard from their parents/care-givers that perpetuate their own negative feelings about themselves?
On the flip side, I’m fortunate to constantly witness the positive models that you are for our students at Kennedy. Every morning, faculty greet students with a smile, telling each and every one how happy they are to see them! I’ve seen upset students calm down, because a teacher spoke in a soft, loving voice. I’ve seen high fives and hugs, and teachers praising students.
Our students are so lucky to have you in their lives to make sure that they hear positive messages each day to build them up!
