The Importance of Honoring New Staff #cpchat

It’s the beginning of the school year and new staff are walking into our learning communities with questions, ideas and new energy.  This can be scary or exciting, difficult or easy.  It depends largely on how we (school communities and administration) structure that experience.  In the past I’ve been guilty of making assumptions about what new staff know and don’t know.  This year I’ve made special considerations to remove those assumptions and feel soooo good about that.  It’s important.  This year our district put together a video of our new teaching staff and just asked them each to share a bit about their values within education.  Very simple thing to do, big impact to the community as a whole.

  1. As a veteran teacher in this district I found these new staff members and their new ideas inspiring. Just what I needed to shake me out of the same-old-same-old back to school routine.
