Improving relationships with students who teachers identify as challenging to understand can go a long way in refueling a teacher’s energy and preventing burnout. Offering a promising method of professional development (PD) for educators can improve teacher-student relationships and student achievement.

Join us for an insightful look at the research on strengthening teacher-student relationships and hear how districts are putting into practice these strategies to support positive student outcomes.

In this session, you’ll learn:

  • How the research supports a focus on teacher-student relationships
  • Actionable PD strategies to develop stronger teacher-student relationships
  • How districts are focusing on relationship-building as part of broader social-emotional learning practices
  • Which data and tools can be used to inform district-wide planning and educator PD
