By modeling proper values, teachers can increase student persistence and goal-setting. Through positive relationships, they can also help students learn skills to regulate their emotions and behavior. Positive interactions with teachers and peers energize the self and increase self-esteem. Ultimately, positive teacher-student relationships boost academic motivation and achievement.

Students notice the character of teacher interactions and peer interactions with students and integrate them into their view of the child’s likability. These factors transmit to the student and greatly affect his/her self-beliefs. Students in danger of failure for various reasons, such as teen pregnancy, domestic violence, serious health issues, or a host of other contributing factors, have significantly higher academic success when influenced by a positive teacher relationship.
