As a school leader, you have a lot on your plate. You have a ton of responsibilities and your to-do list likely never ends. However, pausing and thinking about the training and up-leveling of your current staff is going to have a tremendous ripple effect on alleviating a lot of mental space and emotional labor that comes with starting a new school year. 

In this episode, I talk in detail about the three components of up-leveling your staff. Training, mentoring, and coaching never end. These 3-mile markers in up-leveling staff quickly will help you get the center up and running, and keep it open for a long time to come. And depending on where you are in the pendulum, you are going to choose what makes sense to focus on with your staff right now.

Tune in to learn more about:

  • Small shifts that will elevate your brain space to ensure that you could be well on your way to an amazing school year. 
  • Parent communication and standards for your young staff (under the age of 26).
  • What the developmentally appropriate practices in classrooms are.
  • How to guide your staff through policy and safety concerns in classrooms.
  • The 30, 60, 90 – day mile markers that your staff need to know and understand.

… and so much more!
