Monitor that displays school events and student celebrations as you enter the school.
Tanya Roust
57:53
Our attendance office started saying, “We are so glad you are here,” instead of “You’re tardy.” Many parents have commented on what a different feel it gives.
RaeEllen
58:04
self affirmations on mirrors in bathrooms about wonderful and beautiful
Carrie
58:06
Greeting my students every morning at the door with a greeting of their choice (hug, high five, dance, etc)
Michelle Thomason

I like when I see pictures of students and their families on a bulletin board.
lisa.peterson
58:07
Student work -ALL student work on the wall
Billeen Carlson
58:10
My students keep begging me to let them "clean and organize..." I'm scared.

58:13
school mantra "we care about you, KBeach Caribou"
Meredith McCullough

Instead of sending home "failing" letters, students and I write down a plan for success and mail that home to their parents instead.
Mary
58:17
spending more time in the "dreaded student lunch room" with classes
Holly
58:20
I have a mailbox on my desk. I let kids know that I will always write a letter back to them.
Jennifer Bleicher
58:21
I have a wall right outside my door. I love Snoopy. Kids will draw pictures ect...and I post them on the wall. Shows I appreciate them writing the notes. I also have an open door policy during lunch/recess. I am here to help.
Karla Barkman
58:28
Maybe just a welcome mat like the one on one of your beginning slides:)
Cindy Worley
58:30
I am working on a poster board. Students have outlined their hands with personal decorations and I will place the hands around the board with an uplifting logo showing they matter.
Kendall
58:31
Student council having a voice in school events and decisions. They also get to express their ideas and interests.
Barb Whiteman
58:33
Barb Whiteman: My school environment does not have an entire school philosophy. As classroom teachers, we take care of our students within. We really need to have a school pride and responsibility. Our school only had 84 students, so this is so workable.
f9208
58:36
Artwork done by students! A poster that students point to to indicate how they would like to be greeted each morning.
matthew
58:40
Take time to do fun things in…or outside of class with students. Also, give students opportunity to be creative.
Emily Dinges
58:42
I am a 1st grade class. We switch for homeroom, reading, and math. Since I have students coming and going each day, I always end with them choosing a handshake, hug, or high five as they head out the door. That way I get to interact with them all and they know I look forward to having them tomorrow.
kbrumfield
58:43
I have lots of teddy bears, bean bags, and soft lighting in my counselor office to help make others feel calm and welcome.
kelley.harvey
58:52
family celebrations throughout the year to bring everyone in. We do a harvest festival in the fall where we harvest our school garden and everyone comes for salmon and vegies and ice cream. It is a really wonderful time.
sheila.keller
58:55
I teach a 2/3 so they don’t notice the walls as much as older students might. Our relationships are developed within our interactions and that all feel heard and that they can speak their truth and we’ll listen, not assume. So more intangible environmental trappings.
Elizabeth Ross
58:55
We have pictures of students with their family as many have deployed parents
Nick Popp
58:56
Teaching kids that failing is part of learning
Bridgette
58:59
Illustrate stories … showcase skills and growth
rebecca paul
59:09
I hold morning meetings each day. In this time, we check in, we talk about our day with the purpose of letting each student know how they matter.
lisa.peterson
59:16
We do community and family celebrations in our small village
Karla Barkman
59:18
Have always like that handshake, hug or high five idea!
Katherine
59:23
A grateful circle, or proactive ways to show kindness, etc. A bulletin board with statements from students and how they are grateful.
f206009- Gretchen Nelson and Arctic Light Staff
59:23
This year I added a greeting choice outside the room, a hug, a high five, or a dance. Even the students with the most troubled lives find that greeting helpful. My question is, how can I carry that feeling through the day when the personality of a student switches. How can I bring her/him back to the love?
Terry Pike
59:45
We do regular activities together so every teacher knows the name of every student, and can greet them by name in the hallway and on the playground.
Amy Budge
59:51
We have implemented 2 by 10 the last three weeks and I think it is making a difference.
Kellie
59:53
Invite families and students to our activities and greet them personally by name
Mary
01:00:03
what is 2 by 10
Kelli Boonstra
01:00:14
I have a wall (bulletin board next to my gym) that says "What is your Go To exercise?" I have pictures posted all over the board that the kids brought in of them doing some sport or exercise they enjoy. It makes them feel so special to be up on the board!
Shannon Ryan
01:00:20
I love the morning greeting choice board outside my class. I'm surprised how many students pick hugs.
rebecca paul
01:00:35
I hold walk and talks each T/Th with one student at a time during recess. It has made a huge difference with my class.
Emily Dinges
01:00:37
2 by 10 is 2 minutes of nonacademic interaction for 10 days to build relationship.
Bridgette
01:01:04
Hang their work up when they bring you things from home…. “Refrigerator wall”
Mary
01:01:47
thanks for the 2 by 10 details
rebecca paul
01:02:46
The implementation of PBIS has made a difference in our school environment to build positivity not only respect, responsibility and safety.
Adrianne
01:02:47
Gratitude circle daily.
Adrianne
01:03:03
And PBIS
Emily Dinges
01:03:21
Even though I only have 50ish students come through my door every day, I find time to talk to the students who pass my room in the morning (even if they aren’t my student). Relationships matter.
Bridgette
01:03:31
LOVE this clip again. Kids need it more than we know. The reality is - I do to - how about greet adults that way too?
Tina Tuls
01:04:50
Greeting students by their choice of greeting
Bridgette
01:05:58
Trust sure helps us peel back the layers to the root of the problem.
sheila.keller
01:06:10
I love that he says he intends to be the teacher in high school that he would have wanted back in the day. I do the exact same thing. He’s very empathetic and it is exactly what students that might otherwise fail, need.
lisa.peterson
01:06:10
Oh, this gentleman is a “special education” teacher?
Dominque Smith
01:06:28
Dean of students
RaeEllen
01:06:44
What does the I will wall state?
Bridgette
01:07:06
Kids know genuine before we do
lisa.peterson
01:07:42
Oh, Dean of Students- he is doing exactly what he should be doing and teachers should take the time to greet all the students that they see during the day the same way, but as Dean of Students, he should being doing this. Great Job!
Bridgette
01:08:58
You learn a lot at lunch too.
f206009- Gretchen Nelson and Arctic Light Staff
01:16:10
Communication builds trust.
Elizabeth Ross
01:16:14
Yes
Karla Barkman
01:16:17
Mutual respect among team members
Elizabeth Ross
01:16:25
Sharing students- they are our students
Barb Whiteman
01:16:27
Barb Whiteman: I am seeing my staff members modeling trust and walking the walk each day. With that, feel they are real to me and what they are.
RaeEllen
01:16:33
clarify question to be answered?
Nick Popp
01:17:11
Do I trust government education? As far as I can throw them.
Katherine
01:17:18
Time to create relationships, collaboration, carpooling,
Frieda
01:17:26
being able to communicate
RaeEllen
01:17:46
Model to students by not carrying previous day forward Start fresh
f116409
01:17:46
We model trust by being true to what we say. We do not make false promises.
Bridgette
01:17:47
Push each other to challenge themselves
Cindy McKibben
01:17:53
Being candid is so important!
Kendall
01:18:00
When people are reliable and do what they committed to, can be counted upon.
Terry Pike
01:18:04
Both with our grade level team and with my class, understanding and showing that we are all in this together, we are all leaders and all learners.
f206009- Gretchen Nelson and Arctic Light Staff
01:18:21
Class meetings
kelley.harvey
01:18:26
Just wondering if everyone is posting to the whole group "all panelists adn attendees"? Seems like we might be missing some replies??
e01445
01:18:26
Intentional listening.
sheila.keller
01:18:30
The easiest way to have trust with others in my school is how we collaborate and being open to each other- the same relationships as we have with our students.
matthew
01:18:35
Encouraging words for staff as well as students…adults go through hard times and struggle with self confidence as well
Jennifer Frymark
01:18:42
It’s kinda a hard question to answer…communication, being willing to be vulnerable when talking to our colleagues. We talk about empathy to our students but also need to show it to each other and our kids.
Katherine
01:18:45
Greeting new people, visitors,
Michelle Thomason
01:19:02
I agree, active listening and doing what you say you are going to do help builds trust among colleagues
Dana Evans
01:19:13
Common goals, take an interest in people outside of just the classroom/building help to build trust. I’ve felt humbled as an educator and administrator how much people have trusted in me. I just do my best to be real and present with people.
Jeremiah
01:20:08
No.
lisa.peterson
01:20:17
yes
Elizabeth Ross
01:20:22
I think I am credible in the eyes of my special education students
Cindy McKibben
01:20:24
I think so
matthew
01:20:29
Most of the time…I hope
Tanya Roust
01:20:37
My biggest challenge is immediacy.
RaeEllen
01:20:49
constantly work on within behavior program
Bridgette
01:20:53
I’m going to laugh and play when they lease expect it.
Michelle Thomason
01:20:54
I like to think I'm credible. This is a hard one...
f116409
01:20:54
I think I am credible - I work to be very transparent, honest and follow through with what I say.
f9208
01:20:55
Yes, because I am consistent in my responses and hold everyone to the same standards.
Kellie
01:20:56
yes by trying to demonstrate they are valued.
Cindy McKibben
01:20:56
I am willing to say what I don't know, and this shows others that I am willing to learn with them.
Cindy Worley
01:20:57
I strive to be credible and strive to be honest but caring
Nick Popp
01:20:58
I think most of my students think I am crazy which I am fine with. I like it better than being called normal.
f206009- Gretchen Nelson and Arctic Light Staff
01:20:59
Yes
Barb Whiteman
01:21:03
Barb Whiteman: I am credible with my students because I have accepted within the community, with my individual students and I attend activities that my students are involved in or interested.
Kendall
01:21:11
I think so.
Elizabeth Ross
01:21:15
I am not sure if I am credible with my 4/5 reg ed math class as many did not know me (as I’m the sped teacher). I have spent so much time building relationships! So I can be credible
Emily Dinges
01:21:23
I feel that it is sometimes a student to student thing. The Tough Kids are the ones who it is harder to gain credibility in their eyes.
Shannon Ryan
01:21:28
I think so, but I also think my students are the number one factor that keeps me "on my toes". They can tell when I'm not being genuine, or when I'm not well prepared.
lisa.peterson
01:21:33
Yes, because I am “real”; I am not sugary and rainbows and gum drops. I am so what who will give it to them straight.
f116409
01:21:48
I work to know my students as people. I ask about their personal lives and interests. They are people first.
Mary
01:21:49
I try not to make "threats" or promises that I don't want to keep, like, if you do that one more time...no recess! I do not like to be that teacher!!! Sometimes it is frustrating to reach for the bad/familiar tactics!
lisa.peterson
01:21:55
*someone who will give it to them straight
Nick Popp
01:22:06
Straight up Lisa I like that
e01445
01:22:06
Credibility is often established when students see desired results while testing out new strategies for learning socially or academically.
matthew
01:22:11
As an introvert, I like my students, but be the end of the week I can be needing some non-people time and sometimes I wonder if that comes through as “I don’t like you” to my students
rebecca paul
01:22:18
I believe that I am credible with my students. This comes from the relationships that continue once they leave my classroom and the ones I see building now.
Amy Budge
01:22:26
I believe I am credible. I am intentional about being credible.
spickett
01:22:36
I really don’t know. Is that something we should be asking our students?
lisa.peterson
01:22:37
Nick, well sometimes “on the rocks”
sheila.keller
01:23:01
Oh, yeah. I change my mind when I’m wrong. I admit my mistakes, I make the making of mistakes the central part of our learning. Plus the curriculum is engaging. WE have traditions they know they get to be part of in my class- I keep my students for at least 2 years, so I am pretty credible for them. They are credible for me!
Joanna
01:23:46
I was going to say the same thing about students being people and I try to treat them the way I would like to be treated. I model what I expect, and work hard. In return, I ask my students to do the same. For the most part, I have students who do the same
Dana Evans
01:24:01
Most of my career I think I have had credibility with the students I’ve worked with. Even as an administrator, when I had to make tough decisions, I think most of the students felt respected through the process. I felt it was my obligation to try and repair credibility when parents and students lost that faith in me because they didn’t like the outcome…I wish I could say I was able to fix all situations but not so.
lisa.peterson
01:24:30
Shelia you are right. If you have students for more than one year or like me their entire high school career, the trust comes with the familiarity.
f206009- Gretchen Nelson and Arctic Light Staff
01:24:56
Yes, Dana. Well said!
rebecca paul
01:26:21
reliability--if I say it , I mean it.
kbrumfield
01:26:22
Openness- I am ALWAYS just me and the students see that.
RaeEllen
01:26:26
it stopped working!!!
Kristie
01:26:32
I really resonate with opening up with students! Relationship between students and teachers are strengthened by being able to bond.
Mary
01:26:34
Reliability! I say what I will do and then do what I say!
Nick Popp
01:26:37
Openness I like to share how I have made big mistakes and have tried to learn from them
Cindy McKibben
01:26:38
Maybe openness or honesty
Billeen Carlson
01:26:46
Openness, competency, honesty, benevolence... I sometimes don't get the papers graded.
Elizabeth Ross
01:26:47
I’m honest- although I don’t think the students always get that
Barb Whiteman
01:26:48
Barb Whiteman: reliability because a lot of my students don’t have reliable parents. I can provide some measure of comfort to my students in this arena.
Granger
01:26:56
I feel like i'm best at benevolence - I do care about my students
Shane Bostic
01:26:56
Reliability - Provide consistency
lisa.peterson
01:26:58
Competency- because I really know my subject content area and I know a “little” about life and how my subject content area relates to students lives and struggles
f9208
01:27:01
Opens and benevolence.
Denise
01:27:02
Benevolence. I do my best to exude kindness
Cindy Worley
01:27:04
Honesty-students want to know I see them, not the ideal of them or the worst of them but I see them.
sheila.keller
01:27:05
Fast paced class- so I suppose competence because the students know it’ll be a ride they want to take, everyday. But I also think being genuine and forbearing is a huge part of why they trust me.
e01445
01:27:10
Openness to how I myself am growing as we grow together.
Terry Pike
01:27:21
Reliability - being dependable and careful with what I say so that I am able to follow through.
f116409
01:27:21
I’m open. I present myself as a caring person first, school employee second. As a counselor I let the students know I am there to support them first. I am their spokesperson. I make an effort to know the person before I focus on the student. This means a lot to my students.
Jennifer Frymark
01:27:21
I use a lot of openness, when I ask students to say if they’ve ever done or felt something if I’ve done that I will also raise my hand. Surprises students every time.
Frieda
01:27:26
I want them to know they aren't alone in learning and growing during this school year.
Mary
01:27:26
How about being AUTHENTIC and REAL, these sum up all of the 5 !
Katherine
01:27:30
Openness and Reliable, Probably all of them....
Kendall
01:27:35
I think my best trait out of the five is reliability. I try to always be consistent in rewards and consequences. I also am very routine based. I am also clear about my expectations and don't change them.
Karla Barkman
01:27:36
I am reliable. I do what I say I will do.
Tanya Roust
01:27:39
Benevolence. I really want students to know that I am a “good queen” and not an evil one. :) It a modeling thing, too.
Cheryl Dow
01:27:42
Reliability because I’m consistent
matthew
01:27:46
Openness…and honesty…they go together I think. I interact with my students in various ways in and out of school so we kind of have to be open.
kelley.harvey
01:27:46
I think oppeness. I teach K-5 and even my little ones have a lot to share and are building their self awareness to be able to have open conversations and share their thoughts.
f206009- Gretchen Nelson and Arctic Light Staff
01:27:47
I think that I am the best at openness. My first grade students know about my children. I joke about my faults with them and tell them personal stories. We also write back and forth to each other in a journal. They tell me their feelings, likes, etc, and when they ask me a question I am completely honest in my answering them.
Michelle Thomason
01:27:48
Reliability -follow through, meetings with teachers, communicating,
Terry Pike
01:27:51
Competence - if more information is needed to be effective, I go out and get it, and acknowledge when I need more.
Bridgette
01:27:54
Honesty is hard in early grades though they are brutal back to you. Honesty brings the best relationships in the end.
Amy Budge
01:27:54
Reliability. I am intentionally consistent In what I say and do and my expectations in the classroom and in behavior. Part of this comes from being a sped teacher I believe. Most of my kids need consistent routines and language.
Lila
01:27:57
I think reliability and honesty. My students can rely on consistency. I think my students know they can count on me to be honest with complements and constructive criticism.
Kellie
01:28:00
Openness- I try to be available to my families (email, phone calls, dojo messages) If they need me during lunch I will make it work to meet with them. When I respond to them I try to make them feel valued.
Jeremiah
01:28:03
I guess I would say benevolence and competency.
Adrianne
01:28:06
Reliability: many of our students do not have reliable home situations. They know that our room is safe, consistent, and stable. They know I will follow through and ask them to follow through.
lisa.peterson
01:28:13
Isn’t reliability a job requirement. I am very reliable because of that
Dana Evans

Listening
Dana Evans
01:39:27
I used to let students have lunch in my office as a “reward” and they could bring friends. I was just a bug on the wall and listened as they talked. This was elementary level. Sometimes the older kids could come work in my office if they wanted a nice quiet place. I also ran “pre-cess” in the morning on the playground and got to talk to students then.
Elizabeth Ross
01:39:42
Spend recess with them if they don’t want to go outside to the cold and snow
kelley.harvey
01:39:52
I send home a note card and envelope on the first day of school with "parent homework" which my kids love. The homework is for the parents to send me hopes and dreams for their child and to share anything they just want me to know about their kiddo. I ge the most amazing letters back and the relationship is already forming before I even meet them face to face. open house is so much more meaningful!
Cindy McKibben

Ooh. Our administrator tried that exact practice (elementary) and it was not a useful data point for us- it was met with resistance from staff. Admin should first have an open discussion with the teachers about it to interrogate that particular practice to create trust between admin and staff.
Emily Dinges

Terry Pike

My students LOVE to work at my desk. I am only seen at it after the school day is over...1st grade tables are too low for adult comfort.
