This On-Your-Feet Guide provides tested strategies for building authentic relationships with your students. These authentic relationships between students and adults ensure that students know that they are valued, respected, and trusted. Authentic relationships help students grow as individuals and they help educators grow as professionals.

  • understand the importance of relationships
  • identify ways to create productive relationships with students
  • identify ways maintain productive relationships with students
