How to Build Partnerships - LoVerde Group

Course Description

The goal of this class is to provide participants with the knowledge and skills to build and maintain those partnerships that provide the support each student needs to grow and attain their full potential in the classroom and in life. Participants will learn both how to build relationships with these different individuals and groups, as well as the specific strategies to maintain those relationships. While it seems trite to say that it takes a village to raise a child, it truly takes the coordinated effort of many individuals and groups to provide a student with the best education possible. 

Participants will learn how to access their students to determine the impact different individual or groups have upon the child’s success in their classroom. While many individual and groups impact a student’s success, it is important to determine which of those individuals or groups have the most impact upon the child and for the teacher to focus their energies on those individuals or groups. They will then look at their present relationships with those individuals or groups. 

The next step will be for participants to determine what actions they need to take to build or maintain positive partnerships with those different individuals or groups. After implementing those actions, the participants will evaluate the effectiveness of those action on student performance in the classroom.

The final step will be for participants to determine how they will take what they learned in the class and determine what actions they will continue to take in the future to build or maintain partnerships with the different individuals or groups.
