Tip of the week: Start your time off right with personalized greetings. Whether you are remote or in-person, starting your time with students with a greeting by name, a sincere question such as “What was your favorite part of last night?”, “What are you looking forward to today?” or even a simple “How are you today?”. Make sure to use each student’s name when asking and make sure you have enough time to listen to the answer.
For quick welcome, use a greeting choice board to allow students to decide how they are greeted. A personal, warm welcome can make all the difference in your day!
