Through the Home Visit Project, I am able to connect with many of my students and their families on a personal level – and it has completely changed my classroom and my school. My students now know that I care about their lives outside of school just as much as I care about what happens in my classroom.
The training and support I receive from Stand for Children through the Home Visit Project has given me the confidence to go out into my school community and develop true partnerships with my students’ families. And it’s paying off. Students feel more connected to me and parents trust me to do what is right for their kids. I want other teachers to have the opportunity to learn how to build strong relationships with their students and their families and with your help it can happen.
