We know positive relationships are important, but factors such as absenteeism, racial or cultural differences, and other biases can make it difficult for teachers to form those meaningful relationships with every child in their class. And, after a tumultuous 2020-2021 school year, teachers and students alike may need stronger relationships more than ever before.
With Teachstone’s newest offering, Banking Time: Investing in Relationships, teachers learn evidence-based strategies proven to form stronger relationships that can positively impact children’s development and learning.
The concept of “Banking Time” is a known strategy that helps repair or nurture relationships. And now, Banking Time: Investing in Relationships makes implementing this evidence-based strategy easier than ever.
As we look to welcome children into new classrooms (or virtually) this fall, it’s a crucial time to form a connection with every child. Teachers will feel supported to nurture stronger, more equitable relationships after taking this training. Positive relationships are effective.
The impact those outcomes deliver are powerful. And, they may just be the key to driving a more successful school year.

We know that one of the most important factors in children and adolescents' success in school is the quality of their teachers—and specifically the effectiveness of the daily interactions that support students' social and academic learning. Today more than ever, teachers need time to learn and reflect on their own professional practice.
But too often professional learning experiences are ‘sit and get’ presentations and disconnected from teachers' daily practice. And many research based professional learning programs have failed to demonstrate impact at large scale because they are often highly resource intensive and do not fit well into schools professional learning plans.
The school year is at an end, and many educators and leaders are reflecting and planning for the future. Today’s episode is about both.

IIn our recent webinar, Making the Move to CLASS® 2nd Edition, we shared how programs and individuals can begin to experience and use the enhanced Pre-K–3rd CLASS tool. Certified CLASS observers play a critical role in helping every child reach their full potential.
Without reliable and valid data on the quality of educator-child interactions, programs and educators would not have the actionable insights they need to make continuous quality improvements in the areas that matter the most for children.
