creates the climate. It is my daily

mood that makes the weather.

As a teacher, I possess tremendous

powers to make a child’s life

miserable or joyous. I can be a

tool of torture or an instrument of


I can humiliate or humor, hurt or

heal, in all situations, it is my

response that decides whether a

crisis will be escalated or

deescalated and a child humanized

or dehumanized.
