Let’s just say the grumpy teacher has been visiting my classroom this week.
Nobody likes when she is around.
In reflecting on my (ugh, I mean her) general state of prickly-ness, it dawned on me why the shift in attitude.
We just started our MONEY unit at school. Kids earn classroom money for doing work and behaving and pay fines for not. I’ve noticed I’m back to focusing on the behavior I don’t want to see and levying fines instead of looking for students that are earning their keep.
Must change focus – today.
Today’s yoga brought to you by the home practice! It’s a staff meeting today. You know you’re jealous.
Today’s music is Outer South by Conor Oberst and the Mystic Valley Band.
Don’t forget FREE Fridays at 4:30 with the new It’s All Yoga teachers (21st and X in Sacramento) – you’ve got to sign up online www.itsallyoga.com.
I’m teaching 3/5/10 – so mark your calendar.
