I just watched a video posted on Edutopia called, “Educators Say Good Morning to Students—Via Video”. The tagline says, “This round-up of teachers reaching out to their distant students makes it more clear than ever that relationships are always at the heart of teaching.” I agree completely with this description. Teachers work hard to build and grow our relationships with students. This fall some of us are teaching in person and some are teaching online. No matter the format, we want our students to know that we care about them. A thoughtful introduction will set the tone for the rest of the school day. This video gives me ideas about finding creative ways to greet my students each morning. If you are looking for inspiration, you should watch this video too!
