“What do students want from their teachers and their parents?”

As parents and educators, we have a profoundly positive influence when we relentlessly support and challenge our children. Though parenting and educating is complex – at the foundation is simplicity and innocence.

At Eastview, learning is our focus. We enhance the probability of learning and our children thrive when we personalize and sincerely and consistently demonstrate our care and concern for their personal learning success.

At Eastview, Learning and Students Matter…

A simple question asked by a twenty year veteran teacher, author, parent and qualitative researcher – Angela Maiers, led to the below top 12 responses.

Here is a list of the 12 Most Important things that came out of these amazing conversations:

1.       Greet me:  Wish me good morning.

2.       Smile: Let me see happiness in your eyes.

3.       Give me your attention: Sit and talk with me; even if only for a second.

4.       Imagine with me:  Help me dream; don’t just tell me what I need to do.

5.       Give me challenging content, assignments and tasks:  Show me how to handle it. Teach me what to do.

6.       Ask about me: Inquire about my life, the game I played, the places I go.

7.       Let me have time: Time to let things sink in, time to think, time to reflect & process.

8.       Demand of me: Hold me accountable. Don’t let me get away with what you know I am capable of doing better.

9.        Notice me: Leave special messages . A quick note that says you notice something right.

10.   Let me ask the questions: Even if they are off topic; it will show that I am thinking about new perspectives, curious, and  willing to learn more. Let me have the chance to show what I am wondering about, not just what I know.

11.   Engage me: I came to you in love with learning, keep me excited, keep me wanting more.

12.   Trust me: Believe that I can do it. Allow me the chance. I promise to show you I can.

“Believe that I can achieve at high levels — unconditionally.”
