Relationships Matter - The most important aspect of your classroom 💕🚸 #OnDemand
Getting burnt out by students who don't respond? Tired of non-responsive students? Worried about the social emotional well-being of your kids? Wishing you could replace yourself with a camera-ready cardboard cut out?  It's time to think outside the curriculum! What is the most important part of your school?

Focusing on relationship building - both in person and online - can help our students build trust and perform better. Join me to learn some basic strategies for motivating students, building rapport and why post-it notes are my favorite school tool.
