Students feel proud when their teachers attend their events
You’ve probably heard that it’s the small acts that count. When it comes to how teachers can show their students that they care, it's true, too. Teachers can show that they care about their students by attending their concerts, sports games, and other extracurricular activities.
These small acts of kindness show a firm commitment to serving others. They demonstrate a genuine belief in the power of education and the importance of the human spirit.
Students take great pride in their extracurricular activities and feel good when their teachers show up at their events. It’s a great way to strengthen your relationship with them.
Attending a school event shows your students you're invested in them
You know that sometimes it’s difficult to get students’ attention and to get them to pay attention and focus. It’s important to show your students that you’re invested in them and their success. One way to do that is to attend school events and be involved. If something is important to your students, then you will show up to cheer them on. This is a high-touch approach and shows your students that you’re genuinely interested in them being successful.
Students enjoy the encouragement from the audience, and it helps them perform better
Encouragement is one of the most powerful things you can give anyone, and it has a tremendous impact on students. One of the best ways you can encourage students in your care is to build a community in your class. A community is a group of people who support each other and grow together in a shared space. The value that you provide as a community member cannot be overstated. If your class has a strong social network, there will always be someone to share your interests and life stories with.
