Develop relationships with the new ones
I was in a meeting the other day and someone made a very important insight…. our problems are coming from the new ones (in schools that means our transfer ins). Ah, yes, I replied, “It is because we have not developed relationships with those kids.”
What are you doing to develop relationships with those who are new to your school? District? Or organization?
How you orient or welcome newcomers says a lot about where you place your priorities…
