Kindness: It Matters

Several years ago, I was working with a district to increase cohesiveness amongst administrators and teachers and to improve the learning opportunities for all the students in the district. To that end, I created a survey for teachers and administrators about various issues they face. One area in the culture of the district demonstrated tremendous conflicting answers - teacher support. Administrators believed teachers were given tremendous support in instructional matters, but teachers responded there was little support for their work.
