Fostering good teacher-student relationships cannot be overstated. In fact, building a positive classroom climate where students feel valued and experience a sense of belonging is so important, that it is arguably the most important factor contributing to the success of students both behaviorally and academically. Students who experience respect and unconditional acceptance from their teacher are more likely to be compliant, respectful, and open to learning, while students who experience disrespect and negativity are more likely to exhibit disrespectful, defiant behavior.Behavioral issues are complex. Without question, some children are more difficult to connect with than others and may require more time and effort. But it is clear that there are common strategies in play in the classrooms of highly effective teachers, who regularly and consistently develop a strong classroom community and positive student relationships. You will be amazed to learn about all the little tools and techniques that will immediately make a huge difference in your classroom.
