Why Some Teachers Resist Your Support (and what you can do about it)

Biggest Takeaways You Don't Want to Miss:

  • We tend to feed what we need. In other words, we often offer teachers the support WE would want if we were in their shoes rather than the support they actually need.
  • The way we were trained to support teachers often creates resentment on both sides. 
  • We need to stop treating teachers as if they are broken and it’s our job to fix them. That’s not support. 
  • The moment you stop trying to fix teachers and truly support them is the moment they become partners instead of projects. 
  • Somebody needs to hear this: You don’t have to play the super hero in order to be an effective principal.
