Encourage Autonomy

When students are trusted to solve problems and challenge themselves, they develop confidence that is vital for success in the real world. As a teacher, you should praise students whenever they overcome a tough situation. This helps students have a positive association with hard work.   Check out this article by EduTopia to learn more about how to encourage your students to take charge.

Celebrate Diverse Perspectives

Building a positive school culture for your students is all about being inclusive. No matter the student’s background, race, religion, or gender, they should feel welcome to learn new ideas and share their unique perspective. With an open forum for expression, students should feel inspired to engage and learn about the world from the different viewpoints of their peers.

Cultivate Real Relationships

Teachers should always be trying to build trust and deeper connections with their students. Nothing matters more than the student-teacher relationship. To create a real bond, teachers should show interest in their students’ passions, struggles, and triumphs. When students feel respected they develop a mindset for success in their other relationships.

Teach Model Behavior

Students learn by example and it’s up to you as their teacher to be a role model for them.  You should be instructing students about proper behavior in various social situations, so that they build a strong foundation for the real world. For example, having respect for other students and getting to class on time are excellent starting points.

Make Students Your Top Priority

All in all, teachers should be doing everything they can to create a nurturing environment for their students. Every student body has different needs, so we recommend surveying your classes to see what they like and dislike about their school culture.
