A New Month’s Resolution

Every school day in November, I’m going to call the parents of two students, just to praise their child and thank them for all the great work they’ve done.

I’ve made calls like this before, but not consistently. They’re wonderful. We all know that when a teacher calls, your kid must have really done something bad. Parents are always scared at first. When I explain that I’m just calling with a compliment, they often don’t know what to say. They’re speechless. It makes their day.

But their kids often make my day, so it’s a small thing to return the favor.
