When new teachers ask me for guidance, I say, “Your own relaxation is the greatest gift you can give your students. Relax then focus.”
Someone overheard me saying this and she said, “That’s true for parents, too!”
The more I play with it, the more I think it is the key to everything.
Relax and stay engaged.
