Q7: Negative student behavior often comes from insecurities. How do you put a kid's insecurity to “sleep”? How do you remind Ss they are worthy? How do we build intrinsic motivation to learn? Share any creative ideas you have used or want to try.

A5: I've learned more during my admin career about teaching by simply watching others teach. Find your tribe, observe one another. Reflect in a non-evaluative way. The best stuff may come from just down the hall.

We're revamping the lunchroom plan with more open choices of where to sit rather than assigned sections. We've created collaborative spaces in our hallways, as well as some independent work areas. We will continue to reflect on this throughout the year to meet Ss needs.

A1: HW is a tough discussion to have. I've been HW-free the past two years & loved it! I can at least honestly say I didn't notice a difference in my students' learning without it. I've also seen how tough it can be at home as an uncle who does HW w/my niece each night!

Question 4: Empower As teachers we do so much out of love for our students. However, sometimes we may do too much. What in the past have you done for kids that they could do for themselves? What will you allow kids to lead in the next school year?
