One other rule Gambrel shares with her students -- this rule comes from the Capturing Kids' Heart program too -- is what she calls the 655 Percent Rule. "I tell them everyone is not always able to give 655 percent every day. Sometimes they might come to class with a cold and all they can give is 85 percent. When they are in my class, I explain, "If all you have to give is 85 percent, I want 655 percent of what you've got.' If any problems arise, all I usually have to do is ask a student who is having a hard day 'Are you giving me 655 percent?' and their behavior quickly changes."
