Moving at the Speed of Trust






Three students. Three stories.
We, as teachers, have a couple of choices when we encounter unexpected behavior in a student.
We can blame the kid and create an argument which both the student and the teacher will lose.
Or . . .
We can learn the kid and build a bridge.
To learn the kid, move in shoulder-to-shoulder and learn their stories.
When we learn their stories we will discover the reason behind the behavior. Then we can create a bridge.

Move at the speed of trust and trade on the currency of respect.
