Show Notes

Join award-winning educator and best-selling author Weston Kieschnick along with two of the Early and Elementary Learning Specialists as they discuss the importance of teacher-student relationships. Weston walks us through what relationships really mean when it comes to teaching and learning and how they are truly the foundation for everything that needs to happen in a healthy classroom, school, or district.

Weston reminds us that the single greatest gift we can give a child is a relationship with a caring adult who truly believes in them and the great things they can accomplish.

What to Listen for:

  • What do relationships mean in teaching and learning?
  • What challenges do teachers face when building relationships?
  • What would you say to educators who say that their job isn’t to make sure that the kids are okay, and rather that their job is to focus on academics?
  • How do we make relationships visible to kids?
  • What implications do these positive teacher-student relationships have beyond the classroom?
