A Population Overlooked: Building Caring Relationships Between Military Children and Teachers

Heather Haverback, Kathryn E. Bojczyk

Abstract


Millions of children across the globe are sons and daughters of military parents. These children have a unique set of circumstances which impact their education, development, family, and entire life. This paper considers research, which has shown that when teachers can create a positive relationship with individual students in their class, the student will see the school as a supportive space wherein he or she can academically and socially engage. Strategies to guide work with this population’s special needs are offered for teachers and administrators.
