Healthy Relationships

Teaching students the strategies and skills they need to establish, build, and maintain healthy rewarding relationships is an important part of Social and Emotional Learning.

Building healthy relationships includes relationships between students and educators. It is critical that educators intentionally and authentically connect with their students and make efforts to see and bring out the best in them.

In today’s society, working collaboratively with others is an essential skill that supports healthy relationships as well as our sense of community in any given setting. Collaboration values diverse perspectives and effectively utilizes each person’s contributions. Mastering collaborative skills is key to forging and maintaining healthy relationships in all aspects of a student’s life.
