  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • Authentic relationships are essential to successful learning environments. Research has established students’ learning environment experiences affect their success at school (Opdenakker & Minnaert, 2011). Educators, families and students understand the importance of authentic relationships. Having problematic relationships can be detrimental to student success. Authentic teacher-student relationships foster healthy social, emotional and intellectual functioning. In the Working Together Project study, Smyth and Dunne (2005), found authentic staff relationships were essential in helping teachers cope with the everyday challenges faced in the learning environment. This literature review analyzes the importance of relationships
    between teacher and student, staff members, families and the community.
