A School Leadership Approach to Connecting with Every Student
Not just the “why” of building relationships but the “how”
We all recognize the importance of creating caring relationships with our students. However, much has been said about the “why” of building relationships in the classroom, but rarely do we hear about the “how.” Come join us for this important webinar, where our panel of experienced educators will share insights on the WhyTry Approach to building relationships that help motivate and create buy-in for even the most difficult-to-reach students.
Tools to help school leadership teams
In this webinar, our panel will demonstrate strategies from WhyTry’s new Transformational Leader Administrators Toolkit, designed to help school leadership teams to create a shift in perspective with teachers and staff toward building relationships that motivate and inspire. This toolkit can be a great resource for school improvement plans, faculty meetings, professional development, PLCs, and building capacity for creating a more caring culture in schools.
