We are aware that by committing to the respect agreement, we give our best effort and word that we will try our utmost to follow the rules we collaboratively created - teachers and staff included. Knowing what sounds most difficult for my students allows me to anticipate problems, redirect them to the agreement, and offer support in the looooooong journey of figuring out how to relate to other people well.
Bonus... my favorite dead flowers and wicker bookshelf. Enjoy.
