The power of a smile

I have been playing scrabble on my iPhone lately. After I make a move the game has a Teacher. Tap Teacher and you get a frown, a smile or a grin. Teacher then shows what you could have done, the idea being you learn by seeing a better move. I am amazed at first, how I feel when I tap Teacher. Anticipation. Dread. Then how bad I feel when I get the frown. How dissapointed I am if I think I’ve made a good move, but I only get a smile. And how great I feel when I get a grin.

Remember to grin when your students and staff give you their best move!
