You seemed sorta suicidal to me. Maybe not, but I felt like I felt your struggle, it wasn't an attempt to "want" you. I wanted you to know someone cared. I don't regret doing that. I've encouraged you multiple times to love her and not take her for granted. If you were just taking advantage of my kindness, well, then you were. That's on you, not on me because I was a friend to you when you needed it.
Pinner: I have this on my classroom wall as our class promises, instead of class rules. Sets "understanding of expectations" from day one and instantly sets the tone for the year. Powerful words for parents to read on open house night too.... LOVE THIS!
