Some teachers are struggling with their students right now.
Some take it personally that work is not being turned in, students are not showing up to video classes, and engagement is low.
Here is an idea for your next staff meeting to discuss …
What was your home life like when you were ________?
If you teach middle school: What was your home life like when you were twelve?
High school: What was your home life like when you were sixteen?
Elementary school: What was your home life like when you were seven?
You might just be surprised at what you find out about your coworkers.
I am willing to bet your team grows closer engaging in a discussion like this. I also bet they walk away with a little more empathy for the kiddos they serve and that is a very generous gift you can give.
We talked about this in the mastermind last week.
Our community is truly a special place for school leaders. Imagine how much you’d grow if you surrounded yourself with a cohort of leaders from around.
