I'm going to devise a plan for this year. Something that will
I expect respect - I should display it as well.
I wouldn't want my son to grow up and treat anyone poorly or unfairly or harshly, just because he's in a bad mood, sick, or at his end.
I preach that we are gifted with self-control so we should use it - I need to use it myself.
So, from now on, I'm going to start my day out in devotion to God FIRST. I am going to post helpful scriptures around our classroom. And from this moment forward, if I get harsh, loud, or even off on a lecturing tangent, I am going to write, 10 times, a scripture correlating to my issue.
So that's that. I have read this to Zeek and given him permission to call me on this if or when it is happening.
I am committing to a year of no yelling, no harsh or stern lecturing, no down talking or rudeness from this teacher. If I have to change gears, face the wall, walk out of the room to control myself… I am going to do what I need to do.
I want to look back on this year without regrets about my behavior on bad days.
