Great ideas. I love greeting the kids. I did it differently everyday so they never knew what was going to happen until they got there.
Thank you, I too, smile and say Hello, good morning. They love it.
I like the information about childhood trauma.
Very informative!
Good suggestions for building rapport with students.

I loved this webinar. There was a lot of information to digest.
Loved the presentation as a reminder of the importance of RELATIONSHIPS, as some of us go back to teaching "in person" and the class roster changes to include new students. It is a good way for us to begin building new relationships and foster the old ones! It's like we are starting the first day in February so this will be very helpful!
Informative, clear, and concise.
Love the buckets!
