Reflection…

1 Jun

In February I was part of the 29 in 29 blog effort. Winter is now here and that seems so long ago. So I thought let’s try it for June. So here we go the 30 days of blogging in June.

I have been thinking recently about my role as Deputy Principal.

I strongly believe that, as educators, we need to share who we are.  Put ourselves out there.  Let people in.  Be more vulnerable.

I don’t meant that we need to do this solely through social media or indeed everything we do

We need to be comfortable with sharing more of our personal side – the moments of joy, sadness, success and challenge.  I believe as a teacher there is nothing I love more that hanging out and chatting with the students every recess and lunch. I get to share a little bit of who I am and I get to see a little more about who they are.

My students check out photos of my family in my office and constantly ask how they are doing.  I also really enjoy the informal dialogue with parents and staff at the end of the day.

Its really good when a parent or staff member comes to tell me something about an event or topic which they know I can relate.  When we do this, we humanize us.  Once this happens we are easier to reach out to. In our Catholic schools this common Catholic bond is a starting point always.
