“ Consciously, we teach what we know; unconsciously, we teach who we are.” Hamacheck (1999, p.209)
I recently watched a video on social media that blew my mind and got me thinking of how important establishing rapport with our students is. You might have seen the video of a teacher in the US who uses a personalized greeting with each student before they get in the classroom ( if you haven’t watched it yet, it’s here).
I would have loved to be one of his students. He truly shows he cares about his pupils.
He goes on and says “we pride ourselves on high expectations and in meaningful relationships.It’s more than a handshake, it’s about impacting the student in the most positive way.“
Never underrate the values of relationships, with anyone.
So what can a gesture like that teach us? Do we have to teach a morning routine…
