Every child has a story to tell: a story about what happened at school, a story about a friend who did something amazing, a story of how he or she felt during the day. Children share their stories with peers, parents and siblings, but when they start a new school year, they do not share much with their new teachers. Let’s face it; it is hard to trust someone you do not know, someone with whom you have not shared a journey. Therefore, we teachers devote so much energy to build and nurturing that emotional connection called rapport.
