I walked past several classes on a field trip at The University of Texas. Throngs of 2nd graders were heading from one place to another. They were quite excited to get to the next place and four of the teachers looked like they were tightrope walking their last threads of sanity. The fifth teacher was singing loudly and her students were singing along. General happiness and no problems!
Were the classes composed of different children? No. The only difference seemed to be the attitude of the teacher and her response to the situation! The kids in her class won and the teacher won. Win-Win! Well done, Master Teacher!
