Adults on Campus

What can students expect from adults on campus?

  • Have respect for students
  • Seek to understand and inquire before assuming
  • Ask “What happened to you?” instead of “What did you do or why did you do it?” 
  • Engage in reflective practices regarding our work and continue to learn and improve
  • Have high expectations for student behavior and academics
  • Are "Warm Demanders" (see definition below)
  • Connect with and support students in and out of the classroom
  • Build positive relationships with students

*The Warm Demander approach involves teachers creating clear boundaries for students and demanding high performance from them, and at the same time providing support and encouragement in a very humanistic manner. To do so, teachers bring their authentic selves to the classroom and develop strong relationships with students in order to establish authority and set high expectations for the young people in their charge.
