Teachers are amazing! These educators have a great deal of influence in the shaping of our kids, as it falls to them to teach everything from arithmetic to writing to science. And while these are key concepts our children need to be focusing on, there are some additional lessons children should be learning in school.

“For students preparing to start down their chosen path in the world, learning specific skills for building positive relationships with clients, colleagues and leaders will serve them well,” says Ord.
