Although we focus primarily on teachers; these powerful tools and concepts can be useful in improving on any challenging relationships in your life - especially when it comes to bosses, colleagues, peers, coaches and parents!


Your teacher is just reacting from their perspective, and the beautiful thing is you get to react from your perspective – and your perspective is a choice.

Rather than huffing and puffing in their face, you can remember they’re human just like you – doing the best they can. And even when their best isn’t fair, you can choose to accept, forgive and
let it go.
— Kate Fitzsimons
