Do you attend these sorts of events even when you aren't working as a coach or sponsor? I went to most of the home football games last year, several of the track meets, some wresting matches, some softball games, and a forensics tournament. I obviously don't go to all the events because I need to have a little bit of a life of my own outside of school, but I do try to go to at least a few events each month. I especially try to go when a student invites me personally or casually mentions that they have a game/thing tonight. I've found that students really (really!) like it when teachers go to their events and show an interest in what they do outside of school. Often I hear kids I don't have tell their parents something like, "Hey! That lady is a teacher at my school!" I think it makes them feel proud of their school that teachers show up in the evenings to cheer on the team. Aside from the football games, I don't see many teachers at these events. It would be nice to see at least one or two at each one.
