Reflection: Learning Communities Two-Way Table Talk (Day 2 of 2) - Section 4: Closure


I really was not sure what tag to place on this reflection piece and after scanning through the options I decided that the closest choice was collaboration. 

At this time of the year teachers are exhausted and like in all schools, there are those who will be leaving to other schools, sometimes in other states, or countries.  One of our science teachers was one of those. But this all changed at a meeting when, unaware of his intentions of leaving, our middle school supervisor commended this teacher for his great job in the laboratory this year and mentioned the good comments by his students in a recent survey. Later that day, he let me know that he was seriously thinking of changing schools, but that very comment made him change his mind. 

Teacher to teacher complimenting is scarce in schools, I think. Once in a while, why not tell a teacher what a nice job their are doing, or any other positive commendation we truly feel. We never know how much this can mean to them. So every now and then, tell  a teacher what you admire about them as long as it is sincere and appropriate.


  Teacher to teacher complimenting can be powerful.
