What does your child's teacher expect?

The Pygmalion Effect

Teacher expectations directly influence student achievement. Research shows the expectations of teachers affect students' self-esteem, self-efficacy and their academic motivation. These motivational factors are strongly linked to learning and achievement.

High teacher expectations promote both students' academic achievement and their wellbeing.

Low teacher expectations negatively impact many factors related to academic achievement and well- being. This harmful practice is commonly known as the Pygmalion Effect.

Teacher Expectations Matter!!
