Rule 734

You had a bad day, that doesn’t mean you’re a bad interpreter.

This may apply to you today.

Remember this when it applies to your team tomorrow.

Rule 722

You say the fourth grader you interpret for is ignoring you?

Look around.

How many of these kids are hanging on every word the teacher says?

Congratulations!

You are interpreting for a very normal elementary school kid.

Rule 720

I need to find a spawn-point in this interpretation, reset and just try this again.

Rule 711

Dear Interpreting Student:

I expect great things. This will sometimes frustrate you. But, if you ever get so frustrated that you say, “if it’s so easy I’d like to see you do it!” be warned, it won’t help relieve your frustration; my answer will always be “ok.”

Because I can.

That’s why I’m the teacher.

Rule 708

Your brain believes whatever you tell it. When you speak with confidence (especially when you don’t feel it) it will step up.

But! When you mumble or whisper you are telling your brain you don’t know what you are doing and it will act accordingly.
