4. Esteem Needs- the need for self respect, appreciation and recognition.
5. Self-actualization needs- the desire to maximize ones own potential
Meeting Hierarchy of Needs
Understanding Staff Dynamics
Three types of teachers:
Superstars- these represent the top 3-10% of teachers in a school. They are often effective and respected by their peers. These are your teacher leaders. Know they want two things: autonomy and recognition.
Backbones- good, solid teachers and are the heart of the faculty. Good stable hardworking teachers.
Mediocre- if they left, they could be easily replaced.
When dealing with school morale, start with your superstars. Most want to start with the disgruntled but- when the leaders are not happy, then everyone is unhappy.
Rules- Avoid trying to alter the behavior of less effective staff by implementing rules. The ones most likely to follow it are the superstars, not the less effective staff. Find other ways to work to improve ineffective staff.
When implementing a new rule ask these three questions:
The leader is the one responsible for the climate.
“What people perceive is what they feel is the truth.”
Keep in mind:
“It is a fine line between giving someone a suggestion for improvement and damaging the person’s psyche.”
The Friday Focus is a staff memo that when developed and used properly can help provide management and leadership for an organization.
When used correctly it can be a weekly moral booster.
“I am really enjoying my master’s cohort”
“I have already learned so much”
Remember to take care of yourself. Find a passion and allow yourself to enjoy it.
Go into classrooms and watch the great things happening. Enjoy the good.
Praising your parents and students makes you feel good too.
“You have the power to make everyone feel like someone special.”
Take care of your teachers,
Take care of your students,
Take care of you!
