Fostering Healthy Teacher-Student Relationships

At City Springs, we believe in something called “positive reinforcement,” which is the idea that students should be rewarded for good work and appropriate behavior. Just like adults work hard at their jobs to get promotions and recognition from their coworkers, positive reinforcement plans encourage students to earn rewards for working hard and meeting behavioral expectations.

In Ms. Anderson’s class, if students consistently demonstrate positive behavior, they are rewarded with “Lunch Bunch,” which is a group lunch in the classroom where they get to enjoy each other’s company while they eat delicious food. Lunch Bunch encourages the students to act appropriately and positively, offering something fun to look forward to if they meet behavioral expectations.

We highly value teacher-student relationships at City Springs. Positive reinforcement helps foster a healthy classroom climate for both the teacher and the students, which further encourages positive attitudes in everyone.
