      I agree with Mr. C about the importance of being available and visible. I work in several buildings, so it can be difficult to make connections with so many teachers and administrators. One strategy I have tried is having lunch in the teacher's lounge with a teacher with whom I have been working. On occasion, conversations stop as other teachers try to figure out why I am in the room. I've found that many are willing to open up, though, when I start chatting with them about everyday life. I think taking the time to learn about who teachers are as individuals and not just as teachers has helped some to see me as a person to be trusted.
