The Kindness of Teachers

A former college student of mine and aspiring great early childhood teacher, Bonita, wrote about the video below in an assignment for me this past semester.  When I read the tagline that accompanied the video –  Kids don’t learn from people they don’t like –  well, it caught my attention.  I think it will catch yours, as well.

Be THAT Teacher

I will begin my first year as a first grade teacher on August 19.  I’ll share the story of how and why, in my mid-forties, I made it to this moment in the coming days, but for now I wanted to share a thought and video from our 19-year old daughter.  She said, “Dad, watch this video and be that teacher.”
