Who Am I Lesson Plan – Get to Know Your Students

The really good teachers are able to read a child’s story, and recognize the remarkable opportunity to help author that story. The really good teachers know how to script confidence and success onto the blank pages. They know how to edit the mistakes. And they want to help write a happy ending. Really good teachers know they have the ability to make a child happy or sad, to make a child feel confident or unsure, to make a child feel wanted or discarded. And students know when we care, when we care enough to read their stories.

–Anthony Mullen, 2009 National Teacher of the Year
