Greet Students at the Door
Greeting students at the door is an essential first step in setting the tone for positive interaction. Engaging students upon entering the room gives important feedback on a student’s demeanor and how to respond. 3 tips for greeting students include:
- Smile – We are naturally drawn to people that smile. Additionally, smiling elevates our mood and reduces stress.
- Make Eye Contact – Looking in the eyes of your students can tell a lot about how they are feeling at the moment.
- Nice Notice – Notice something nice about a student and tell them.
