Episode 78: Connecting with Kids

November 16, 2015

Connecting with the kids in your classroom or building better relationships with them takes work.


It doesn't just happen.


After all, we should know that the kids buy into you way before they buy into your subject. 
Since this is the case, it means that connecting doesn't come easy.


Today, I am discussing three ways that you can start connecting with the kids in your classes.

1. Use names.
2. Go beyond the expected.
3. Get involved with school activities.

These three ways of connecting with the kids in your classrooms will help you. By connecting with the kids, they will want to do the work for you. You will be able to inspire them to want to do better and to do more and to get excited about learning, but without the connections classroom progress will be extremely difficult.


Enjoy connecting with the kids!
