Before Things Were Instant

“In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life: it goes on.” —Robert Frost. I remember a time before things were instant: Cell Phones, Email, the Internet. I was in a position where my communication with my family and friends was sent through the US Postal Service.  If I had a question or request for my parents, I typically had to wait 8-9 days for a response. Most of the time I solved the problem or figured out the answer to my question before the response came. Why? Because I needed the results quicker than the time frame given...

That’s Not My Problem

“That’s Not My Problem!” I hear this statement a few times a week. To me, it translates into, “I don’t have the time, energy, or skills to solve the problem that lies in front of me.” Or, “I don’t care about the outcome or solution to the problem so therefore it’s not my problem.” In education and the business world for that matter, if a problem doesn’t get solved in a timely matter, it grows to the point that it becomes everyone’s problem.

How can you/we make this right? Restorative Discipline

How can we make this right?  This question comes up in almost every interaction I have with students in my office. It’s followed by, “What things need to be made right? And who do you need to make things right with?”  Depending on the incident, this conversation can last anywhere from five minutes to thirty minutes.  The keys to making this exercise successful are the steps that follow these simple questions. First, I ask the student to practice this process out loud with me. Second, I let them know that I am going to follow up with them and the other party involved. I pretend to be the teacher/other student/ hall monitor/ secretary and have the student approach and talk to me as if they were going to apologize and make things right. It’s painfully awkward and uncomfortable, but the students usually leave with a few different ways to make things right. I bring them back down a couple of days later to see how the conversation went. Or I stop them in the hallway and see what happened. If they didn’t follow through on their end of the process, I sit down with them and find out why. Then we go through steps one and two...
