AMCMS Principal's Office

What's Going on in the Principal's Office?!

Dear Peyton | Gatorade

My Challenge to You

Please take a couple of minutes and watch the video above. To me this video demonstrates the power of relationships, taking a moment to reach out to someone, and just how great of an impact we an have on others. What does this video mean to you?


As we wind down the school year over the next 2 weeks I want you to think about something. How do you want this school year to end? What lasting memories do you want your students to have about you? It is not about being the cool teacher or the teacher that let's students get away with stuff. It is about interacting with students in such a way that they see your fun side. Your human side. You can maintain discipline and respect with students and still be able to have some fun with them and enjoy having them in your classroom.


This week is packed full of opportunities for positive interactions with students. It is also packed full of opportunities for negative interactions with students. You will encounter both, how you react and handle those moments are up to you.


How will you want to be remembered? These last two weeks will help shape those lasting memories of you as their 7th or 8th grade teacher.


Think. Achieve. Succeed.


Jeff
