Let's Brag On Each Other!
I've thought a lot about what I would like to do differently in 2013. I'm sure you have too. Life gets so busy and we put so much on our plates (me included) that we lose sight of what's going on around us. I really want to make a point to make other's feel special this year. Sometimes as teachers we don't always hear the "Thank You" or "Great Job" because we are all running around like hamsters in a wheel. For me, I notice all kinds of great things going on around me but yet I don't always stop and tell that person. Let's make this year of "Bragging On Each Other".
I have to say that I love the school that I work at, and we are always trying to find ways to highlight something about someone else, even if it is little. Even on your worst day it is nice to see or hear a nice comment. So this year my school put up a "Brag Board". All month long we write special notes to each other and then our admin takes a picture and puts it on her Admin Blog. I love that. It hangs on the wall by our mailboxes which makes it very easy to go by and read.
So what about you? How can you implement somthing like this in your classroom or school?
