Initial Coaching Meetings

Image result for one on one coaching

This is the first week of school and the year is already filled with abundant amounts of adventure and confusion!

This is the email I sent to my teachers 2 weeks before school started:

Good summer to you!
I am sharing a Google Doc with each of you individually with some questions to answer. I will be sharing a separate doc with my own answers as well.
One of my goals is for us to have the most powerful and dynamic working relationship. In order to respect everyone’s learning styles, I am sending this doc this week. I know some of you like to marinate a little longer than others.
I will send it again closer to starting school! I want to meet with everyone for about a minimum of 10 min to talk about the year either through tech or face to face. I will be sending a schedule Aug 13th.
Have a great rest of the summer and I am looking forward to hitting the ground running.

 

I then sent the GOAL SHEET. You can check it out and make a copy here if you like.

I sent a schedule for teachers to sign up for a 15-minute time slot.

At the 15 minute meeting I am asking 2 questions:

  1. What is most important to you right now?
  2. What is your favorite snack?

When I do trainings and meetings I try to have candy or snacks for my teachers. I want to know what they really like.

I plan to use some of the information to make a connection map to show how similar we all are as humans and also to have some stress relief that is aligned to how they take care of themselves.

I am hoping some of this information will help me make stronger relationships!

  1. This is great. As a fellow teacher I can say that taking care of myself is important to me, so that then I can do my very best with teaching my students. The 2nd is, having someone watching out for me and understanding me, whether other more experienced teachers or principals. Your teachers are so lucky to have you!
