Hi Amanda, Angelica, Brittany, and Dustin!

I apologize for the tardiness of this message. I had a challenging and time-consuming university project to address on the Sunday after our Saturday class session.

In addition, this has been the first week of the academic year and the fall semester. For that matter, I have three meetings in Athens tomorrow, which may result in additional projects for me to address during the Labor Day weekend.

Thanks are offered for your responses to the prompts, which were offered, regarding the aspects and importance of a healthy school climate. You did well. In fact, I plan to incorporate your responses with the others for inclusion in the September 15 agenda and more discussion about school climate.

Regardless, I hope that you have a pleasant holiday weekend.

Until then, Bill

Dustin, Amanda, Brittany, Angie
Might you discuss in small groups and then report to the entire group the reasons that (1) your charm and shrewdness might and might not contribute to a desirable climate (2) the potential challenges of maintaining openness in faculty relations, and (3) the reasons that you would or would not want to provide leadership for a healthy climate?
1. Your charm: What you consider to be charming may be perceived differently to others. Your charm needs to be more than just surface level; you need to build a deeper and genuine connection/relationship.
2. Potential challenges:

*         Too soft, they can take an advantage of you.

*         Becoming a principal in a building that you taught or in the district you graduated from.

*         Having preference towards certain faculty or departments.
3.  Reasons why you would: Less stressors, stakeholders are stable with what's going on in the school, established foundation
     Reasons why you would not: Failed system/practices, people don't like change, question your approach and don't jump on board.
