This week I’ve been listening to the Inspiring Educators Podcast Series. In one episode on school climate, I was inspired by two comments 1) When working with students having behavioral issues, build your connection before administering a consequence. Often the former will eliminate the need for the later. 3) Students, staff and parents will follow a leader who exudes warmth and competency. That comment reminded me of the saying…”Parents don’t care what you know until they know that you care.”
Hope you’ve been inspired to listen in on the many podcast topics in this series!
