Here are 3 ways teachers show their students how much they care, on a regular basis:
“I write inspirational quotes on sticky notes and as I walk around the class, I subtly place them down for a select student. I keep track in my grade book so that I can mix up who receives them”. Vicky Krug, Professor, Westmoreland County Community College
“I ask them non-content related questions about work, sports, etc.” Jeremy Mettler, Batavia High School
“I praise for specific things like pushing in chairs, listening skills, etc.” Justin Holbrock, Roland Park Elementary Middle School.
