BC: Tualatin Elementary School 2011-2012 | This 4th year of teaching was the best! We had an awesome group of kids, which made for a fabulous classroom family... and also VERY hard to say goodbye at the end of the year. I'm looking forward to many more years like this one. :)

2: "I've come to the frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element in the classroom. 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 joyous. I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration. 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 and a child humanized or de-humanized. -Dr.Haim Ginott
