Whether you call it yelling, hollering, or raising your voice – the reality is, yelling, hollering, or raising your voice to get the attention of your students is not an effective teaching practice.

Yelling makes you grumpy.
Yelling makes you tired.
Yelling increases your stress.

Yelling makes your students grumpy.
Yelling makes your students tired.
Yelling increases your student’s stress.

When you raise your voice often, the kids learn to tune it out.
Yelling models poor communication skills.
Yelling is disrespectful, intimidating, unprofessional, and hurtful.

The moral of this story is….

If what you have to say is important enough to hear…

Then find a way to say it so the kids will want to listen!

Every time I think I know everything I need to know about teaching young children, God says, "Hold on a minute!" and gives me a new challenge.

Let me tell ya...

With each new challenge that you overcome, you will find yourself better equipped and more passionate about teaching young children.

God didn't call wimps to lead, teach, or care for His children. Nope, he has high expectations, so get ready. You will have to give your very best but after teaching for over 30 years, I can tell you that it is a wonderful and rewarding journey.

Whenever your calling feels hard, just remember, 'He who began a good work in you (and in the children you serve) will be faithful to complete it.'
