Respecting our Educators 101

1. What’s one point you try to convey to your students all year long about being successful?

  • Monsieur Olhault says…

“The number one thing about being successful is being consistent. Being at school consistently, doing your work consistently, having a consistently good attitude, and being consistently respectful of the educational environment [contributes].”

  • Mrs. Sandberg says…

“Your grades don’t determine your worth, it’s the qualities you possess that determine your success.”

  • Senora Espinoza says… 

“You can’t give up, you have to keep trying.”

2. What’s the most common mistake your students make in your classes?

  • Mr. Ho says…

 “Not listening to instructions the first time.”

  • Ms. Royal says…

 “I don’t give a ton of homework, but I give a lot of work time in class, so when I do give homework and you don’t do it, that drives me a little crazy.”

  • Mr. Dunn says…

“I think talking while I’m talking is the biggest thing for me. I don’t mind a little talking while solving problems, but when I’m trying to teach or explain something that’s different.”

3. What’s one thing your students think you don’t pick up on/notice but you do?

  • Ms. Dixon says…

“I always notice when my students take an indirect route to the hand sanitizer/pencil sharpener/tissue box just to talk to a friend.”

  • Mr. Levy says…

“It’s really obvious when you’re using your phone underneath the desk or the phone is off to the side, or if your hand is in your bag and your looking down, it’s just really obvious. Sometimes I say something, but I mean c’mon.”

  • Mrs. Forbes says…

“Probably body language in terms of their interest or non-interest, but sometimes I just have to forge ahead if I pick up on the non interest body language but I do see it. Sometimes we can jazz it up and pull out the bells and whistles, but other times the curriculum dictates we just forge ahead.”
