A rough day it was indeed with just about every student of mine, as an intervention specialist, getting into some sort of trouble. OR at least at the time it felt like every student. It is amazing how just a few students can cloud your judgment of the day. When I began writing report, I thought it was an awful day, but then realized it was pretty great day when I wrote ill reports on less than half of the students. Dear substitutes, and regular teachers, always try to focus on the positive. For every negative there are at least 25 positives. My challenge to you is to seek out those positives. For every negative you receive, or for every student you correct, seek out at least 10 positives and praise at least 10 students.
