Empathy and Engagement
work based boundaries
In a large organization, there are many moving parts, and it can be easy to lose sight of the big picture. When we're privy to discussions about staff attendance, the progress of certain groups, strategies for involving parents, and upcoming school events, it's natural to have questions and doubts. But it's important to remember that our colleagues and administrators are doing their best, and that they may be dealing with factors that we're not aware of.
Just take pause. Before we criticize decisions or projects that we haven't been a part of, let's take a moment, a breath even, to reflect on the intricate puzzle of managing a large organization. There are countless factors to consider, and it's important to respect the privacy and understanding of our colleagues.
Let’s not forget the tasks that have already been tackled by our amazing team of teachers, related service providers, office staff, coaches, secretaries, coordinators, and paraprofessionals. We pride ourselves on being a tight-knit community, and true efficiency comes when we recognize and respect everyone's unique strengths. We're all working towards the same goal: providing our students with the best possible education.

As Marley says so eloquently, "I know that I'm not perfect, and I don't claim to be."
