I spent the day with a group of my FBLA students at a leadership conference. I hate being away from my classroom, even for days like today. I find that preparing for a sub is more difficult for me than just going to work. For this reason, I almost never take a day off. Even though I was hating being away from my classroom, the students did have a great time. My one big take-away from the day was a comment in our last session. The presenter kept telling the students "Let's keep our comments CPP--Clean, Positive and Powerful."
I loved the idea and I think I will use it with my students, or anytime I am getting ready to say something in front of others. I will keep it CPP.
