I recently witnessed a student discovering new meaning in self-management.
“Circle up,” the teacher said in a stern but calm voice to her seventh grade math class.
The students knew what was coming. Their teacher had been out the day before and she had the note in her hand. Any student or teacher knows about the note: it’s the written reflections of the substitute teacher.
The teacher read the note to the class, then opened a discussion:
“Why is it important that we learn to use our self-control all the time?”
Hands slowly went up.
