A little praise goes a long way. Today I taught in a kindergarten classroom with two other educators. While this is nice to have a smaller child-adult ratio, it's also intimidating as a sub to know if I'll measure up to the other teachers' expectations. After about an hour of teaching, one woman leaned over to me and said, "You are doing such an excellent job with the kids." She had no idea how much that meant to me, and that compliment helped my attitude throughout the day and gave me the confidence to be even more myself while teaching that class.

What a gift a compliment can be. Compliments are inspiring!
