Few would argue the toll the pandemic has taken not only on student learning but on student and staff mental health as well. Schools must put measures in place to respond to these needs and get all those who work and live in our schools back on track.  The fastest, most effective, research-based way to do all three, is by creating a psychologically safe environment based on strong-teacher-student relationships.
The foundation for success in every great classroom is built upon strong relationships; relationships with the teacher, relationships with and between students, and relationships within one’s self.  Starting the 2022-23 school year off with a Classroom Relationship Plan in place to develop strong connections in the classroom is critical for student and staff success.


Greg Wolcott, author of the best-selling book Significant 72: Unleashing the Power of Relationships in Today’s Schools and the Director of the LearnerFIRST SOAR Center will share a proven method of developing stronger relationships, increasing student achievement and enhancing teacher well-being used in over 1,000 schools across the United States and Canada.

As a result of this workshop, participants will:

  • Discover tips, tools and techniques to create enduring relationships beginning on day one of the school year.  

  • Understand the importance of intentionally creating relationship routines and rituals that forge relationships with and between students.

  • Leave with a Classroom Relationship Plan that will serve as a blueprint for relational success to be used throughout the school year.
