Teaching all of your students the same thing at the same time is the second biggest mistake teachers make.... Lack of engagement is the biggest. "What's wrong with a little bit of humor?" "I agree with my students that respect is earned, not given."

If you think standardized tests are a terrible way to measure student achievement, I agree.... We should know where they started, what they need and take them as far as we can... Ever had to sit through a terrible professional development that was boring, useless and about something you'll never need to know and will never use? If so, don't teach your students like they "taught" you. After twelve years of therapy, my psychologist said something that brought tears to my eyes. He said, "I no speak English."~Student for Weekly Writing Contest
