How about making an effort each day to make a connection with at least one student. Pay attention to what he-she is interested in and use that as a way to start a conversation. Talk about the World Series or the school cross country team and how that's going. Or last night's band concert and how you enjoyed the trumpet part your student played.

Repeat. Repeat.

Let the students get to know a little about you. I'm not saying that you should try to be their best friend. But be human. You can mention that you carved pumpkins last night with your kids. Or that the thunderstorm woke you up and you're a little tired today.

And it's fine to still expect the students to be quiet when you are giving directions and to bring their books to class.
