calm

The coordinator of the school came and observed our classroom last Thursday morning during morning meeting.  It was really great to have a Montessori trained person come in and make suggestions.  I am a pretty animated person and can be quite loud at times.  Nate had great insight into being more calm and having a more modulated voice. 

I practiced on Friday and it was miraculous at how much calmer the class operated.  I don't think it will always happen, but I think if I keep it in mind, we won't have as many challenging loud behaviors.
