This is session two of six for the series titled Beginning Teachers: A Guide to Support Your Teaching Journey

NOTE: While we recommend that you attend all sessions of the workshop series to meet the learning objectives, each workshop can be attended as a standalone. Full members will also have access to view the recordings on-demand and earn up to six continuing education credits.

Workshop Description:
When students feel supported, they are more likely to engage in learning and have better academic outcomes. Join Dr. Samantha Fecich as she shares strategies to help beginning teachers connect with students during the first weeks of school and build upon those relationships throughout the school year. Participants will also have an opportunity to access done-for-you templates and resources that go beyond student interest surveys to develop a plan for connecting with students in ways that are meaningful and genuine.

Learning Objectives:
  • Discuss the importance of positive teacher-student relationships, connecting with students during the first weeks of school, and building upon those relationships throughout the school year.

  • Explore strategies that go beyond student interest surveys and develop a plan for connecting with students in ways that are meaningful and genuine.

  • Special Technology Instructions: Participants will need access to an internet device and a non-school, personal Google account. SimpleK12ís Google Classroom will be utilized for the interactive and hands-on components of this workshop.

    Assessment: Participants will use the templates and resources provided to develop a plan to connect with students for the upcoming school year to demonstrate their understanding of the workshop objectives and reflect on their learning.

    Thank you for your insight and this info! Love your personal three words that you use to describe positive relationships with your students - interactive, meaningful, and intentional. "The power of noticing"...taking time to have our students be seen. Love that! Thank you!
