Little BIG Thing #1: The Brightness of Your Eyes

No matter a person’s age, the brightness of your eyes is your first impression. Every day.

That is to say, do your eyes light up when your students enter the room?

The easiest reflection of your enthusiasm, caring and understanding is in how bright your eyes light up when they enter the room.

This is something that sometimes needs to be on purpose.  Probably the more you do it, the easier it becomes to do it without thinking.

However, the brightness of your eyes is not just for first impressions, it is for every impression.

When I introduce a book I love to my class, my eyes light up.  When I talk about words, my eyes light up.  The brightness of my eyes indicates that it is okay to love and be excited about learning.

I try to think about the brightness of my eyes even when I’m dealing with poor decisions.  Indications that what they do are not reflections of who they are.

So it is simple, allow the brightness of your eyes shine.
