White teachers building relationships and understanding: students of color / living in poverty

This study explores how white teachers can best build relationships with students of color and students living in poverty. The barriers that these students face and how to combat these challenges are explored. The importance of student-teacher relationships and parent-teacher communication is also discussed. An interview with Dr. Matthew’s, a school superintendent/principal provided insights into my problem of practice. Recommendations for the study include the importance of teachers building meaningful relationships with students of color and/or living in poverty in order to best support them.
