5 Tools To Build School Culture This Summer
What a year! I’m sure you’re exhausted from all your hard work. The school year certainly takes its toll. That doesn’t mean there isn’t important work to be done, but it’s still important to take a second to breathe, and reflect.
So let’s all take a deep breath. (Seriously, join me. It helps.)
Now, let’s take a look back at this year. In hindsight, what aspects of your school culture would you improve? Could you have used any new ways to motivate and support staff? Would you have benefited from a little more creative inspiration?
Don’t worry, we are here to help you every step of the way – even in the off season!
This summer, here are a few excellent resources that can help prepare you for next year:
#1 – CLICK HERE to check out TEEN TRUTH’s school counselor, Stephanie Lerner’s, latest blog on wrapping down for the school year. She offers key insights and tangible advice that I am sure everyone on this list can use.
#2 – CLICK HERE to join our school admin group on Facebook. At nearly 1,000 strong, it is a great place to find inspiration, gain insight, and ask questions. (Make sure to answer the application questions because we do screen who we let in… Maybe even mention that I sent you.)
#3 – CLICK HERE to take our school culture check up. This is a 5-minute survey that is exclusively offered to people on this blog. Sometimes just taking the time to put everything into words can help you gain a better understanding of how to improve things. Plus, if you fill it out, I will create a personalized video response for you with various thoughts, resources, and ideas that will help build school culture.
#4 – CLICK HERE to download a FREE copy of my school culture book or use this code (“TeacherBuyIn”) to receive a 50% discount on hard copies in TEEN TRUTH’s online shop. This book is simple, contains actionable steps, and will be a great starting point for discussion with your team. Don’t believe me? CLICK HERE to watch a video that one of our school’s created on the value of this book.
#5 – CLICK HERE to read the 30 pages of my next book — Building Resilient Students From the Inside Out. I can’t wait until the fall when I get to unleash this book in schools across the country. I know in my heart that it can help students overcome adversity, build resilience, and find success. I am happy to share this exclusive offer with you!
It has been a true honor to work with you this school year. I can’t wait for next year. It is going to be our best one yet!
Signing off until July.
