Relationship Building

Use a Wall of Fame to Build Rapport with Your Students!

Building relationships with students can be difficult, especially if you see hundreds of kids each week. However, strong teacher-student relationships are vital! Once you truly connect with your kids, your art room will transform into a community in which your students feel safe and supported. In turn, this will help them to fulfill their creative potential. Check out this strategy to help build your community of learners!
