BUILDING TEACHER/STUDENT RELATIONSHIPS

"You must capture a kid's heart to get to his head. If that's not where you start, please do another job instead. Kids must know you to be true and the key to that is without a doubt...you!" Dr. George Luck- Principal of Temple High South, Temple, Texas

In working with today's young people, we must realize that the influences on their lives are much different from those in past years. The rate of change and the things kids are exposed to today are significantly different from previous generations. The resulting struggles bear testimony to the difficulty they are having with those changes. (Flip Flippen, Founder of Flippen Group-"Capturing Kid's Hearts")

The EXCEL Model

In an effort to build positive student/teacher relationships, teachers may incorporate the "EXCEL" model as outlined by the "Capturing Kid's Hearts" framework. The steps outlined in the EXCEL Teaching Model prepare teachers to effectively impact their students each time they come together, from the beginning of class to the end.
