Positive Relationships Changing the World

Professional Development Sundays at Raki's Rad Resources 

Recently, I posted about how my school is using Facebook and Pinterest as part of our professional development.  (See the whole post HERE.) I’ve decided to pass on some of the best videos and articles I come across to you each Sunday evening.  Here is this week’s professional development post:

 Are you creating positive relationships with your students?  Professional Development Sunday at Raki's Rad Resources

 This week’s video is short, but powerful.  In her 8 minute speech, Rita Pierson declares that every child needs and deserves a champion, and that students don’t learn from people they don’t like.  She talks about the power of positive thinking and showing our kids to look at what they do know instead of focusing on the negatives.  How do you build relationships in your classroom?
