TCHL 555 - Getting to Know You
I love being a Purple! I love being a teacher and couldn't ask for a better group of students and coworkers! As we like to say, "It's a great day to be a Purple!"
This is our furbaby! He is a chiweenie that we adopted about 2 years ago from the Humane Society.
I have one sister, and she and her husband have one of the cutest kids EVER! My nephew just turned a year old and is just a happy, spoiled little boy! I love him to bits!
“Listen earnestly to anything your children want to tell you, no matter what. If you don't listen eagerly to the little stuff when they are little, they won't tell you the big stuff when they are big, because to them all of it has always been big stuff.” - Catherine M. Wallace
I think as teachers we get so busy that we don't listen sometimes, but our students just want someone to talk to. Just listening is one of the easiest and quickest ways to build relationships and let your students know you care. Even if what they are saying doesn't seem important to us, it is important to them and that's what matters.
