Student Teacher Relationship

Teachers who can maximize the learning potential of students are successful in helping more students succeed. But, it is difficult to build the kind of relationship with students that allows them to approach teachers during a crisis and at the same time retain a level of respect.

In this post, you can find a few points to help teachers build and share a balanced relationship with their students.

Classroom

Communication: 

Proper communication plays a vital role in developing a positive relationship. Be an inspiration to them and person who they look up to. This eases your job to a very great extent. But, make sure you have set boundaries for your closeness. Closeness should not be an excuse for them to disrespect you.

Engagement

Since it is the beginning of a school year, it gives teachers an excellent opportunity to have a fresh start and engage with students. Conduct interactive activities like quizzes, educational trips, storytelling, etc. Understand students’ interests, hobbies, etc. By knowing them, you can engage them in more conversations about it.

Trust and respect

Encourage

A word of appreciation from a teacher can change a student’s world! Be the teacher who appreciates the good work of your students. You can conduct activities like ‘student of the week award’ or give them an A+ on good assignments etc. Positive reinforcements always strengthen the bond between teachers and students..

Mood

It is not fair to take out your temper on your students. Always separate your reactions to personal ongoings and tough days from your classroom interactions. Greet your students with a smile when you start the day with them. However bad your mood is, try to begin the class with a ‘hi’ or ‘good morning.’

Impartial

Of course, you will have a favorite student in your class. But, being partial to them is unfair to other students and should never impact your choices. Always be impartial about your students. Understand that every student is unique and appreciate their talents.

Have a wonderful year!
