Session 3: Why Leaders Should Be Consistent Adults in Their Students’ Lives

November 1, 2023
4:00 – 5:00 PM ET

Children need consistency. Adults do too. Showing up for our kids and staff is major. Principals who stay in their schools for three to five years have better teacher retention. Supportive and consistent relationships are the foundation of motivated and engaged students. Children with strong relationships with caring adults are more likely to be engaged at school and more motivated to succeed academically. Unfortunately, many children lack the stability and support of an adult who is there for them consistently. When young people have consistent adults and safety, security, and predictability in their learning environment, it becomes easier to trust adults and build relationships with school staff. Having positive relationships at school does not just mean that children are taught academics and treated kindly. It also means schools fostering and supporting students’ emotional well-being through those relationships.
