Respect the Student

“The secret in education lies in respecting the student.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson

Respect the student by showing up totally prepared. Respect the student by welcoming questions you can’t answer.

Respect the student by expecting their very best. Respect the student by demanding their very best.

Respect the student by NOT honoring  their excuses.

Respect the student with your language and your tone.

Respect the student by dressing like your craft matters.

Respect the student and most of the time, the student will respect you. Sometimes they won’t, but that’s why they are students.

 

Maurice Guest Jr., is an education administrator in Little Rock, Arkansas.
