Week of February 25, 2019

Let's focus on KINDNESS all week long...

Remember to do a 'uniform check' after attendance

High Expectations for students.... We're teaching Respect & Responsibility

give out LOTS of snowflakes for ALL the good you do see :)


  • Kids want/need to feel heard
  • Kids want teachers who smile and are happy (the same that adults want from bosses)
  • How do your students know you love your job?
  • Teach every child the way you would want your own child/grandchild taught
  • Be what you want to see
  • Kids need to leave your class feeling better than when they arrived

Good News Call of the Day

Don't forget to make your PAWSitive Referrals! We're almost half way through the year so we need to TRIPLE or efforts... try to suggest a couple each week!

Teach Like A Pirate!

What strategy are YOU trying this week? What gets students running INTO your classroom?

The 'P' in pirate stands for Passion: "Only passions, great passions, can elevate the soul to great things."- Denis Diderot

read or re-read the Passion chapter this week. What are your Content, Professional, and personal passions ad how can you incorporate those into your lessons?

Let me know if you use any PIRATE hooks so we can share with colleagues!
