We talk strategies principals can use to ensure staff meetings are worthwhile.
At their worst, staff meetings can feel monotonous, unnecessary, and frustrating. But there’s no reason they can’t be productive, worthwhile, and potentially even fun. Principals Allyson Apsey and Jessica Gomez join us to show that principals can make staff meetings better for everyone involved. We discuss:
- How to foster collaboration
- Creating a positive environment
- Making meetings worthwhile
- Quick and simple tips for improving staff meetings
Allyson Apsey is principal of Quincy Elementary School in Zeeland, Michigan
Jessica Gomez is principal of Alice Birney Elementary School in Colton, California.
