For those of you who have been have read some of my background information you already know that I am a former elementary school teacher,  During my teaching years, I spent a great deal of time teaching the three R’s of education, reading, riting and rithmetic as they were so fondly called in those days.


Today we are utilizing many other words that start with R such as recycle, reuse and restore in an effort to be energy conscious and to help protect and sustain our environment.


Although, I left the classroom many years ago, the classroom has never left me.  Once a teacher, always a teacher!  It’s in my blood.  In fact, my book “I’m Not Perfect And It’s Okay” is what I consider to be a teaching tool. In my opinion, you can take the teacher out of the classroom but it is very difficult, perhaps impossible, to take the classroom out of the teacher. My blog site falls into the same teaching category as my book.  My posts are not meant to offend but rather to educate. 


The reason I have chosen to discuss the three R’s of education is because other than the ones I have already mentioned in the first two paragraphs, in my opinion, there are many more equally important words starting with R.


A few of these are responsibility, respect, and reciprocity/relationship.  When people hold themselves accountable for their actions they demonstrate a sense of responsibility.  When they become more accountable and accept responsibility, they develop self-respect and in turn earn the respect of others.  When they earn the respect of others, this eventually results in a mutually respectful relationship, which is what I refer to as the beginnings of a reciprocal connection or affinity.  Whether positive or negative, people eventually become the reflection of each other.


In other words, those around you will be a reflection of yourself and your values. How is your reflection in the mirror looking back at you?  Do you like what you see?
