Supporting the Back to School Transition

The back to school transition is a time of excitement and a time of pressure. To-do lists grow long on the principal’s desk, last-minute staffing changes, teacher rooms to get ready, curriculum materials arriving, meet-and-greets in the evening…

At our latest #822chat, we discussed the back to school transition. More precisely, How Do You Seek to Support the Transition Back to School?

Some of the top responses share common threads related to relationships and school culture.

“Focus on relationships with teachers, students, and parents! My goal is for everyone to feel like they belong! Maslow before Bloom.” – Mrs. Melanie Lee

“I’ve been contacting all my students with IEP’s to learn from their parents how things are going with those and students for reassurance.” – Lane Walker

“Listening. You can’t support what you don’t understand. Also, positive energy – I always hope my presence provides a boost!” – Caroline Raville
