For me, respect is a tough topic to write about and define. I believe this stems from being an educator. As educators, we always talk about the importance of teaching our students respect. In professional developments, this is met with a question, "What does respect look like? What does respect really mean?" The leader of this type of professional development is trying to make us see that not everybody knows the meaning of respect. Therefore, there is a broad understanding in the educational field that respect needs to be taught and modeled to our students.
