When I came, with no plans of being the school principal, and had to come up with our school model, I created it based on what I knew. Taking a little bit from each of the schools I have worked at in the past. Using what I knew, we created this model.
And with 100% buy in from the teachers, it might have worked well. But with anything new, you have to evaluate what worked and what didn't and make changes to make it stronger...better. What worked at my old schools doesn't necessarily work here.
How do I create a positive behavior program that will work and hold our students accountable? How do I encourage achievement from our staff, students, and parents? How do I disciple students and teachers alike?
We are thinking. And brainstorming. And coming up with new systems. And trusting that as we develop and strategize, that God will continue to fill in the gaps here.
What ideas do you have for stronger positive behavior systems? Accountability for teachers? Incorporating more small group instruction and hands on learning? Scheduling for classes?
All ideas welcome!
