Showing love for students means doing what's best for them, not what's easiest for us.

Instruction that focuses on procedures helps students do math, not know math.

Making every minute count doesn't preclude student empowerment; it promotes it.
Students should learn from their mistakes, not erase their mistakes.
Whether or not students cooperate with you depends on what you say and how you say it.
