Why Fostering Teacher/Student and Student/Student Relationships are Important
"Fostering relationships is an important and key aspect of teaching. The most important thing you can do is create a relationship with the students because it is the foundation of learning and is critical to everything." - Dr. Barb Brown
Suggested Technological Tools to Help Foster Classroom Relationships
