Jenise Sexton gifts us with a brief, yet powerful post to reflect on the relationships we have (or don’t) with students. In here post, The Push Without Relationships, she shares a few experiences and practical bits of advice. These three quotes from her post say a lot about the impact of relationship.

“The ones who when they were absent I secretly rejoiced because I knew the class would run smoothly.”
About lesson plans:

“Relationship is the important aspect of teaching that gets you through the tough moments.”
