With back to school season in full swing across the country, we wanted to share stories from two teachers filled with tips to get to know students better during the first few weeks of the school year. Kimberly Williams and Suzanne Rogers both used Panorama’s Get to Know You survey, a free research-backed tool, to build strong relationships with their students. They’re among the more than 3,000 teachers that have used the survey with 30,000 students!
The Get to Know You survey builds on research from Panorama’s Director of Research Dr. Hunter Gehlbach showing that positive teacher-student relationships are critical for students’ engagement, sense of belonging, and overall well-being at school.
Below, these teachers share how they’ve used the survey in the past, and how they’re planning to get more teachers and district administrators involved.
