Encourage Colleagues #MTBoSBlaugust Post 11

Standard

Sometimes we have tough days, so a bit of encouragement can be the little boost needed to finish strong.  My Granny was a wise, wise lady.  I learned from her whrn you’re having a tough time, start to get down on yourself, if you’ll focus on encouraging or serving someone else – it can lift your spirits…it’s not about you anymore.

Here are 3 Things I’ve seen in our building this year to offer some encouragement to colleagues.

This clipboard is on a shelf in our lady’s faculty restroom.  There are several motivational quotes that are cycled through.

This jar was in our lady’s faculty restroom last year, filled with positive thoughts and motivational quotes. 

 This year, we’re beginning with every employee and/or department on a slip of paper.  The big idea, is to draw one out and encourage that person for the following week.  

The teacher who shared this board idea said it came from a link on Pinterest called the 30-day Happy Teacher Challenge.  There’s a variety of challenges from encouraging colleagues, taking notice of students, exercise/time for self, trying a new strategy in your classroom and organizational tips.

The idea is each time a teacher completes a challenge, they add a sticker to the board.
