  2. Create deep and meaningful relationships with kids by working soley for their benefit. Nothing else will get you better connected to kids...and the kids connected to you!

Relate this to kids

Use every and anything you can to create a closer relationship with kids. When you do, everyone wins. However, don't let the students determine the potential depth of the relationship by limiting it to shallow common interests such as music, clothes, and other similar things.


Set a higher standard...and therefore also higher possibilities!


Don't settle on less!
