BUILDING THE FUTURE ONE STUDENT AT A TIME

January 11th-29th

Do these words describe our campus culture? If not, what can you do differently to help create an environment that is best for student and staff learning?

  • Professional
  • Respectful
  • Encouraging
  • Collaborative
  • Flexible

Just a few aha comments in this month's ASCD magazine:

What adults say and do can either support a student's sense of hope for the future or chip away at it.
