My Motivational Teacher

The best thing a teacher said to me motivational quote

“One of the best things a teacher ever did for me was say “I don’t know the answer to that but I’ll do some research.”  It modeled a more honest intellectual discourse. You don’t have to pretend like you know everything and you don’t need to have or share an immediate opinion” – Clint Smith

My teachers often said things to me like “Rick stop staring out the window” or “Rick do you know the answer?  Rick? Rick!”  Many of us are no longer the student, we are now the teacher either directly or indirectly of our children or grandchildren.   How are you doing with that?  Do you find a difference in your mood and your teaching abilities?  In this blog Elaine Taylor-Klaus talks about Parenting ADHD Kids When You Are Stressed
