Dear Parents, Friends, Students, Eagles,
We have to be so careful about how we speak around young impressionable children. What they see, what they hear, is exactly what they do. There is no doubt about the saying, "children learn what they live". I hear my students using the same language that I teach them in the classroom in outside settings. So if we are going to be the people that children see, let us be good, upstanding, clean-mouthed adults who would be proud to have these eagle-eyed mini me's tagging along behind us; because they will open their mouths and reflect us. So, do we want to feel proud or do we want to feel ashamed?
