How often do you have conversations (via email or in person) with your administrators? I've known a handful of my teachers since back when I was a classroom teacher. They're pretty friendly with me and stop by for a chat when they're dropping their kids off in the cafeteria for lunch or while I'm at yard duty. During the times I'm actually in my office, they might stop by to ask how my day is going. Other teachers won't approach me at all; however, they'll email me whenever they have a concern/comment/question. A few teachers don't ever ask me for anything at all. Ever! Thinking back to when I was a classroom teacher, there were 2-3 administrators who I completely stayed away from (for various reasons). There were a few, however, who I was completely comfortable chatting with (either about school or other unrelated topics).
