Students deserve to work in a positive and caring educational environment. They deserve to be taught and advised by educators who have high expectations for them and genuinely care about them. This type of environment sets an appropriate foundation for student achievement.
A students' potential can be maximized through positive relationships, well managed classrooms, and Best Practices for Instruction. Educators must get to know their students, set boundaries, and incorporate a variety of learning styles in their instructional activities to help students grow academically.
