This is my first year as a team leader and nearly everyone on my team is new. So, I've reached out to all my teammates to see if anyone's free for an informal "meet and greet" at a local diner. I thought back to how when I was a new teacher I really appreciated that my teammates reached out to me. We all sat down at a coffee shop for a couple hours and just chatted. Funny thing is my team leader wasn't there. She ended up being a cool lady, but I quickly learned she's not the type to want to hang out/fraternize outside of school. What about your all? When you were new, did your team leaders do a meet and greet? Those of you who do not have new teammates, does your grade level chair have get-togethers over the summer?
