During our first teacher planning day, our principal had a great idea to have a potluck breakfast. I feel that as a counselor, our role is to foster community and build relationships with and among teachers. While not all principals are as supportive as others, counselors have a very important job and can take advantage of days like this to work on community building. Besides the fact that I love breakfast foods, I really think that by simply bringing in food- it brings people together. I got to talk with some teachers on a personal level that I usually do not get to. I hope you have the opportunity to build up your community at some point this year!
