Developing Positive Relationships: Every Child Needs a Champion, was developed because we realize the impact positive relationships can have on students. Today teachers are faced with a number of federal, state and local mandates that we forget the importance of building positive relationships. Teachers are so worried about teaching to the test that we wanted to give them something which has nothing to do with curriculum and instruction, but is simply focused on giving them ideas on how and why positive relationships are so important. We both have a passion for children and for educating others, and when you combine our backgrounds we have been able to develop a course that is sure to inspire others. We know teachers and educators know how to teach and have a love for children, if they didn't they would not have went into education. We really just wanted to take things to the next level for teachers and educators and provide them with information and real life examples that they will be able to take back and use in their classroom or school. We not only combined our real life experiences but we also wanted to provide them with research from Ruby Payne, Howard Gardner, and Maslow to show them it's been proven for years that relationships are a vital part of the education process. We want each teacher or educator who takes our course to walk away with a better understanding of the impact positive relationships can have on students, because you never know at what moment you may be that teacher or educator who could change a child's life forever.
