What wonderful sentiment!!! I feel the same way....especially the
respect part....and the humor. Two of the most important factors that
are never taught in your education classes..

>Love them all, especially the ones that make it hard.
>Treat them every one as equally as possible and with respect, even
those that
>show little respect for you on the onset. Most will come around.
>If you only have one rule you strictly enforce, make them respect the
>feelings, art work and possessions of their fellow students. They might
>like each other, but have to get along.
>Be prepared. Try out everything before doing it in the classroom. The
time you
>spend before class will be directly proportional to the enjoyment you
and your
>students have during the lesson.
>Use humor. Don't take everything to heart, especially with the middle
>aged kids. Tease them and be prepared to get it back ten fold.
>Make this your life's work -- a career, not a job, no matter how
temporary the
>situation. It will be so rewarding.
>When things go wrong one day, the next one some students will remind
you why
>it's all worth it.
>Get plenty of rest. Teaching is extremely taxing, but exhilarating,
>Best of luck! Write me back if you are interested in some middle school
