Sousa’s Techniques to Build Self-Esteem

I agree with nearly all these tips, especially the first one which is absolutely crucial from my experience. However, I do not advise teachers to shake their students’ hands. It is not appropriate and I would recommend teachers should desist from doing it.

    When I was learning the Conscious Discipline program, part of it was to greet students at the door, they could pick if they wanted a smile, handshake, high five, wave, etc. depending on the options the teacher chose. I don’t know about young kids but I don’t know that it would be a bad thing to teach high school kids to shake hands as they will do that at almost every interview for the rest of their lives. Now that doesn’t mean it needs to be done every day, maybe just the first time you meet them.
