Positivity In School

vs. discouragement

Maintaining a good attitude, even when faced with difficulty

To practice Positivity, I will:

  • practice gratitude
  • do good things for others
  • make time to play and relax
  • think hopeful thoughts
  • understand that obstacles are there to challenge me

A Math Cheerleader

As a math tutor for elementary grades and a math teacher at the college level, I found more math fear than math ignorance.  Many students had no confidence in their math ability, and this affected their determination.  I always tried to find something in real life that modeled the math principles I was teaching.  Food and shopping figured prominently in my examples.  I always encouraged my students to have a positive outlook before learning something new, when starting homework or studying, and before a test.  Before passing out test papers, I tried to instill confidence in their ability and positivity in their attitude. Students seemed to respond and voiced appreciation for their change in attitude.
