You can’t lead the people if you don’t love the people. You can’t save the people if you don’t serve the people.

Great teachers do not stop teaching at 3 p.m. They don’t stop teaching when kids are let out for summer break. Their teaching doesn’t even stop at the walls of their schools. Their lessons in empathy, communication, and human understanding are not confined to classrooms, or a particular 45-minute window on a particular day of the week. Imagine if all of us saw the world through the eyes of a great teacher and seized every opportunity afforded to us to act as change-makers.

Listen to the mustn’ts, child. Listen to the don’ts. Listen to the shouldn’ts, the impossibles, the won’ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me… Anything can happen, child. Anything can be.

National Bullying Prevention Month: Creating an Environment Where Bullying is Unnacceptable
1. Immediately break up bullying behavior
When you see bullying, you need to take actions right away and tell the bullying children that their behavior is wrong and they need to stop immediately. The best way to handle this is to ask the bullying children to stop immediately in front of both parties and bystanders.
2. Have a serious talk with the bullying victim to find out more information about the situation
Be sure to speak with the bullying victim along and adequately document what the student is sharing with you.
3. Speak with other students who witnessed but did not participate in the bullying behavior
Help bystanders understand what has happened and explain how they can be helpful in preventing future incidents.
4. If minor bullying has occurred, speak with the bullying students about their behavior and why it is unacceptable
Be sure to provide clear examples of bullying behavior and suggestions for changing behavior in the future. Be sure to only comment on what you’ve seen and not what was shared by the bullying victim.
5. If serious bullying is occurring, arrange a meeting with student’s teacher and appropriate school staff
Be prepared to discuss your observations and other incidents the student has shared with you
