I am responsible for so many students, I’m not sure I have the time or energy to get to know all of them. Why is this so important?

It can be difficult to make the time to get to know students, but it will be time well spent.  Research shows that when students feel cared for and supported by their teacher, they will be more likely to live up to classroom expectations and less likely to misbehave.  The result is less time wasted trying to engage students in learning and more time with on-task learning.  Taking time in the beginning of the year to form relationships with students can allow you to have a better functioning class the rest of the year.  For more information about the importance of the teacher-student relationship, visit the American Psychological Association website at http://www.apa.org/education/k12/relationships.aspx.
