It’s the simple routines that create positive relationships between everyone in your classroom:
Make that early morning greeting the most important moment of the day.
Smile and get to know your students.
Use icebreakers to dive deeper into their minds.
Speak peace into your classroom each and every day.
Be the glowing light for those students who are surrounded by darkness.
Make the call home a positive call.
Take your relationships with your students to a greater stratosphere.
Open your heart and communicate to the hearts of your students.
