“I’ve come to the frighteningconclusion that I am the decisiveelement in the classroom. It’s mydaily mood that makes theweather. As a teacher, I possess atremendous power to make achild’s life miserable or joyous. Ican be a tool of torture or aninstrument of inspiration. I canhumiliate or humor, hurt or heal. Inall situations, it is my responsethat decides whether a crisis willbe escalated or de-escalated anda child humanized or de-humanized.”~ Dr. HaimGinott
