8/22/2013 5:20:31Start by simply telling them who you are. You life outside of school. Your passion. Your hobbies. Your interests. Then they'll realize you're not just a teacher but a person too :)TheDrMueller

8/22/2013 5:22:42Don't just listen - respond. Give them spaces and places to share what they like, who they are, how they want to learn. First, listen. Then weave this throughout your learning design.@virtuallykaren

8/22/2013 5:53:19Have a book waiting for them on their desk that you have chosen "just for them" from the classroom library (6th grade). Shows that you have thought about their individuality and interests before you even begin class.
