  • "I have come to the frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element in the classroom.  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." --Hiam Ginott


    I choose to be joyous and inspirational to my best ability with the life of your greatest accomplishment, your child!!  

    Love, Ms. Lackey
