 Be HUMBLE - admit when you don’t know something

 Remain CALM at all times and model KINDNESS and PATIENCE
 FOLLOW THROUGH with consequences
 SMILE often, LAUGH with students, and SIT with students
 Offer options, but give students a chance to problem solve
on their own (Alber, 2011)
Moore, E.T. (2015)
So What Does That All Mean?
Ages and Ages (2016) –
Divisionary (Do the Right Thing)

“Doing the right thing means doing what is best for

the greater or common good. It means making
decisions that are not based on your own personal
needs, that don't expand your popularity, or enforce
your personal beliefs.”

Fisher Thornton, 2016, comment Joelle

What is Dedicated Teaching?
Dedication refers to a love of teaching or passion for the
work, which includes commitment to students’ success.
Responses often referred to loving the subject matter or
simply being dedicated to the work. To a student, this
means a teacher should be “always willing to help and
give time.”
Peterson-DeLuca, ( 2016, Para 6)
True Dedication

Meet Mr. Chuck - a caring and dedicated teacher. He spent

33 years teaching kids at a regular high school then went
on to start teaching kids in an ESE class working with
medically fragile kids.
