Give them a Nudge

You probably are becoming aware that lately your teachers are stretched for time and energy. You may schedule an after-school workshop and then find very few teachers show up. An effective way to support your teachers is to be their coach, mentor, or guide to help them reach their individual learning goals.

  • Drop by your teachers’ classrooms to check in. Just say, “I was in the neighborhood and wanted to see how you’re doing.â€
  • Observe your teachers and keep notes on their teaching practice, classroom setup, and management style.
  • Pull together any lessons, textbooks, and support materials they have access to so you have a better understanding of their curriculum.
  • Schedule a time to meet so you can help them develop a plan to reach their goals.
