Do's and Don'ts of Greeting Students at the Door
Greeting students at the door helps you to build relationships, which translates into a more productive classroom. However, your actions need to be delivered with a sincere and light intention. When students know that they are truly welcome in your classroom, they will respond in ways that may surprise you.
- Position yourself at or just inside your door
- Make it known that you are happy that they are there
- Provide positive direction/guidance for the class period
- Tell students what your expectations are for the day
- Give them a sense that this is a new day
- Lose sight of what’s happening in the hallway
- Bring up past transgressions
- Take student behavior personally
- Bring your personal concerns to class
- Be a drill sergeant
Building community starts at the classroom door and students who know what to expect in your classroom are more likely to be engaged learners.
