It has come to my attention that some of you have been doing the most unthinkable, educationally sound practice ever. You have been praising your students and congratulating them on getting good grades. This practice has got to stop immediately. Your compliments will only make those who did not do well feel bad and that is not something we want. While praise is important it must come from their peers, not from you. Students congratulating other students will encourage everyone to do better.
Remember, it is not your job to say nice things to any of your students. If you do, I will put a letter in your file and you will be rated ineffective at the end of the year.

PS: As you know I do not have any real teaching experience and no education courses under my belt but I read about this on a blog on the Internet, written by a shoe salesman in India so it must be correct.
