I Dare You!

I have been so concerned with the posts I have been reading and listening to talk of some teachers! STANDARDS! PARENTS! BEHAVIOR!  The negativity that seems like venting makes teachers seem like they don't love their jobs!

I DARE you!

Make your room happy!
then start talking about the happy stuff! on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook! #happyclassrooms

Check out Greg Smedley-Warren's bog and take the challenge!

I DARE you!

Take a few minutes, smile and talk to your students!  Listen to them talk and interact!

I DARE you!

Stop overly obsessing about standards and/or data and focus on the learning of your students! Proclaim and broadcast it!

I DARE you!

Plan something fun!  After, 25+ years of teaching...they only remember the fun stuff!  Like the time you fell off the cooler at the field trip!

I DARE you!

Promote other teachers that you see and hear creating "happy" classrooms!
