When students walk into class on the first day of school or college it is always an overwhelming and unforgettable experience.
It’s important that along with making new friends and learning new subjects, you also get to know your teachers and, in turn, make them take notice of you as a student.
A little secret about teachers?
They, too, enjoy interacting with their students and look forward to building a lasting relationship with their students. Teachers often reminisce about their students long after they have graduated.
Here are a few easy measures that students can take to lay the foundations for lasting relationships with their teachers.
Be presentable, dress appropriately
The first impression about you generally makes a lasting impression. If you are in school make sure you dress in a clean, well-ironed uniform always. If you are a college goer and you are smartly dressed, it would make you feel more confident about yourself.
Smile and don’t forget the greetings
You need to look approachable. Sharing an easy smile and greeting your new classmates, teachers and non-teaching faculty will always make them take notice of you and will make you look friendly and easy to approach.
Be courteous and polite
Bad behaviour and lack of basic courtesy are sure ways to make anyone dislike you including your teachers. The right behaviour always makes a long-lasting favourable impression on people around you.
