School Leaders' Help for Teachers:
A principals' workshop for working with burned-out, cynical teachers.
The problem with burned-out, cynical teachers is that they do not like to be burned-out and cynical alone. They look for company to join them in their professional gloom, despair, and "victimization".
Their unprofessional behavior impacts:
Their Colleagues - who wonder why you don't do something about it;
Their Students - who feel they are being punished just because they are in his/her class;
The Parents - who also wonder why you don't do something about it; and,
The Central Office Staff - who have no idea what you can do about it.
You can probably use more tools in your leadership tool box while working with these people. This one-day session targets low-functioning, dysfunctional classroom teachers needing to improve their perspective on the profession and the learning climate in their classrooms. This is not a workshop on instructional supervision rather; the focus of this workshop is on research-based interview questions that are intended to stimulate self-reflection - the predominant vehicle for bottom-line professional improvement. The setting and interviewing technique will be demonstrated by workshop facilitators and practiced by participants.
Typically, this workshop is conducted for school district administrators onsite. Cost is based on the number of participants
