what I intended to be a friendly direction could have translated into feelings of inadequacy. I know I have the ability to project, to imagine the worst, to create stories before they happen, but as I taped up my first sign, “cut on the lines,” I could easily imagine a large number of children who wouldn’t be able to actually cut on the lines. and it’s not what I meant anyway….I wasn’t asking each child to cut on the line, I was inviting each child to practice cutting on the lines. this is so this is how I teach. projecting, imagining, creating, changing course… all in hopes of empowering and saving dignity…

Nice and creative way of providing better understanding to the students in a very simple manner
You are, obviously, a wonderful teacher! I’m sure that the kids you teach will thank you for your lessons one day…
You are really so kind and respectful of children. Your ideas and implementations get into my soul. I know that might sound hokey but I take young children so seriously and when I see someone else who does also I feel so validated. Thank you.
