2. Student-teacher relationships-To improve my student-teacher relationship the first thing I will do is get to know my students. I need to find out what they like and dislike, and become approachable. This will help me and the student in the long run because we will have some goodwill built with each other, and they may be able to come to me with personal issues that are hindering their learning. The second thing I would do is listen to my students. It is a sort of dictatorship in the classroom as a teacher, but I feel it is important for students to have some say, or at least feel that they have some say in what we are doing.

The last thing I would do is not discuss other teachers to the students. I have witnesses students bring up other teachers in a negative light and the teacher agree with them. This does nothing to help the students out. It hurts the positive environment we are trying to create. We are role-models for our students and if we can talk bad about or colleagues the students will do the same with their peers and so
