‘My first banner to display in my class. I implemented this motto with the prep class I had at the end of last year,’ she wrote online.

‘It was super sweet to hear the kids reminding each other of it when they were frustrated or having a hard time. Now I have a visual reminder to put above the whiteboard.’
