Cultivating the Student and Teacher Relationship

As teachers, we all recognize that creating connections with students is essential. There is no teaching without cultivating a relationship between the student and the teacher. In this week’s episode, Beth Parrino, Hahnville High School’s current teacher of the year, reminds us that sometimes in creating those relationships, teachers teach life’s most important lesson, “you can do hard things.” She also emphasizes that cultivating the relationship means preparing learners for life after high school.

What are some ways you stay motivated to “do hard things?”

  1. Hey Brittany,

    Happy Sunday!

    I just got this email and realized how close our ministry names are! That is totally a coincidence.

    “Ordinary Women, Extraordinary God,” has been our tagline all year. We flipped it after Christmas.

    Wow! We are on the same page!

    Sure do appreciate you! Melanie

  2. I stay motivated to do hard things by focusing on my end goals. Thinking about the positive things that will come from doing what you’re doing helps. The people you care about that it will impact, and imagining that your better future life is already happening now.

    Love your tutu, what a wonderful way to express yourself!
