Positive Email

power of words

As teachers, we often have to send out emails regarding a child’s behavior or issues that may be going on in class.  I remember learning in college, (before email) how important it is to send out as many positive notes as I do “not so positive” ones.  I sometimes forget how important that is.

This evening, I received an email from one of Drew’s teachers with just his name in the message line.  Of course, the first thing I thought was, “Ugh, what did he do….or not do.”  I opened it and instead, found a lovely email from his Social Studies teacher telling me how well he was doing and that he currently he has an A in the class!!  It might still be early in the school year, but he’s off to a good start!!  I made him come down and read it himself.  He only muttered a “hmph” but I saw the smile he was trying to hide from me slip out the corner of his mouth.

I do try to send out those positive emails and notes when I can.  Now, I feel like I want to try even harder.  It felt so good to be on the receiving end of one tonight.  I think I will go and write one right now!

      It really is so easy to do. Being on the receiving end was just a reminder 🙂
