In a paragraph entitled “Make a Connection with Your Students,” Janelle notes: “Making a connection with your students is one of the best ways to form a solid relationship with them. Find a way to understand your students so you can build a deeper connection with them.”
Janelle sums up her article in this manner: “Teachers are often the people that inspire us the most. They are the ones that assist us on the path to a successful education and life. And sometimes, the teachers that make the biggest impression on us during our schooling are the ones that push us to do our best. The teachers that we once thought were so hard on us turned out to be the one that made us who are today. You may have not known it then, but looking back, you can see the impact that teacher had on you, and how it affected your future. Be that memorable teacher for your students.”
