Can students be friends?
A class starts the day on-task and quiet (like Friday's 6th graders). I notice this. I think, hey this class has it together. So I let my guard down. Crack a joke. Appear approachable. Maybe it's something as small as allowing myself to smile.
And every time, by the end of the day my back is covered in footprints.
Maybe the kids read these as signs of weakness. I don't know. Can I have a good time and keep the kids on the lesson plan?
