Great resources for planning your first staff meeting of the year:
The most important meeting of the year is your first staff meeting. Don’t make it be a sit and git…staff meetings should inspire teachers for the work they have to do, give them ideas to implement in their classroom and be a chance for ongoing professional learning.
Ice breaker suggestions:
You can also use the spider web ice breaker to show strengths and how the school is better as a whole than individually. Have each staff member share a strength or a special talent instead of what is suggested in the site.
