Principals who remember ths little touches know how to motivate this teacher

Look at the star I received from my principal.

She also underlined the importance of asking a student, "How can I help?"

She sent us an article that emphasized that our job as teacher is not "what can I teach today."... it's "How can I help you today?"   A child who is hungry doesn't need a bold new worksheet.

The article also emphasized global skills.

So it might mean more opportunities to talk to students about how they can use Skype in their homes to practice being BIB Penpals.

Students can go on and learn how to become conversation assistants over Skype for Jair da Silva Filho, a teacher in Brazil.  Here's a sample video.
