How long does it take to change a culture and attitudes from isolationist thinking to cooperative and collaborative? Two years? What can I do, personally, to take us from where we are to being THE BEST of schools, teams, teachers?
I'm a new K-5 math coach in a district that has never had a coach before - I was a 5th grade Gen Ed teacher for 8 years. Many people have been supportive and uplifting but not all. I have a lot of years of a difficult administration to overcome and loads of fears to expel. The new admins are wonderful and have a great long-term view for the district. I just seem to feel like a salmon swimming upstream.
