Hello, TeacherMood!

teachermood tips for busy teachers

So you may be wondering why I chose TeacherMood as the name of this site.  I wholeheartedly believe that teachers can and do make a difference in the lives of children.

This quote from Hiam Ginott left me shook the first time I read it.

Hiam Ginott Quote TeacherMood

Take that in for just a few minutes…

“I’ve come to a frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element in the classroom. It’s my personal approach that creates the climate. It’s my daily mood that makes the weather. As a teacher, I possess a tremendous power to make a child’s life miserable or joyous. I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration. I can humiliate or heal. In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis will be escalated or de-escalated and a child humanized or dehumanized.”

Even now, it gives me goosebumps. We are the deciding factor. We build the safe haven for a thriving community of learners. No, every day is not perfect, great, or even good. But if you’re like me, you make the most of it anyway! The good days always outnumber. It is our teacher mood that is the deciding factor of how the day will go. 

In my classroom, we try to find reasons to laugh. I believe that children who are happy to be at school with you as their teacher will work harder than they ever thought they could to meet the goals you set for them.

That is why I named this site TeacherMood.

I look forward to sharing my thoughts and ideas. I love sharing teaching tips and engaging resources to make your teacher lives just a little bit easier. I’ve also got a whole page of freebies for you! As a former first grade and fourth grade teacher, and current instructional coach, I have tons to share!

Welcome, Teacher Friends!
