Don't Teach, Motivate



PAD, Day 6 – Don’t (blank), (blank)
I used a form today, it's called Cascade.

Don’t Teach, Motivate.

Students are selfish and spoiled.
They need attention and guidance.
I won’t give up on these kids.

Strolling into class late with ipod
But no homework or supplies.
Students are selfish and spoiled.

Is that sincerity in their eyes?
Are they giving me some effort?
They need attention and guidance.

They are actually trying for me.
They realize I care about them.
I won’t give up on these kids.

I love this!
Thanks for visiting my blog, it's always fun to "meet" other subs. You're brave to sub in high school! They scare me just a little, so I stick with elementary :)

Deirdra - thanks again for the glorious award!

Jamie - little kids scare me! Well, maybe not scare, but I can't be sarcastic with them - they're so literal!
