Awesome info!
I really believe that having a relationship with a teacher does help a student to work harder in class. I liked several of the tips Christine talked about. Some of them would work better when you teach the same group of students all day. I have 4 classes of different students and would like to incorporate the bucket list, complements for students and teacher.
Thank you for the wonderful tips for connecting with the students.
