Iíve come to a frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element in the classroom. Itís my personal approach that creates the climate. Itís my daily mood that makes the weather. As a teacher, I possess a tremendous power to make a childís life miserable or joyous. I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration. I can humiliate 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 dehumanized.
