With Mrs. McGuckin...

It’s Not a Class; It’s an Experience.

“Cooperative learning and positive communication set the foundation for success in my classroom while a high energy, and inclusive atmosphere creates the culture.”


“I’ve come to a frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element in the classroom. It’s my personal approach that creates the climate. It’s my daily mood that makes the weather. As a teacher, I possess a tremendous power to make a child’s life miserable or joyous. I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration. I can humiliate or heal. In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis will be escalated or de-escalated and a child humanized or dehumanized.”
