I’m all about setting an attainable goal for myself each year that’ll help me be a better leader. This year, my goal is to improve staff morale by recognizing teacher and support staff achievements—whether it’s a shout out in the Monday Memo or a quick note in their mailbox. I read a quote that really resonated with me: “A person who feels appreciated will always do more than what is expected”. What’s your goal for the new school year? I go back to work on Monday, so I’m getting mentally prepared.
