Day 29: 30 Days Lesson Plan, Part 2

The Adminstrators

Don't think in terms of power,
Compliance, or control
Be a leader, not a ruler
It's a much better role

If you don't respect the students
then they won't respect you back
And you shouldn't be a baby
if they give you some flack

You can have a good relationship
With even the offenders
But it's not going to come
By being an irrational suspender

Adopt policies based on sensibility
Instead of based on lawsuit liability
Ditch the Cover Your Ass mentality
And just deal openly with reality

Just because you can be harsh
Doesn't mean I'd recommend it
You cannot dictate -- you must earn --
The right to be considered legit
