“I’ve come to a frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element in the classroom.

It’s my personal approach that creates the climate. It’s my daily mood that makes the weather.

As a teacher, I possess a tremendous power to make a child’s life miserable or joyous.

I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration. I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal.

In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis will be escalated or

de-escalated and a child humanized or de-humanized”

                - Haim Ginott
