It's the last week before winter break and I think we're all feeling a little..... ready for break. Staff morale is a tricky thing and I think school counselors are in a perfect spot to help the school with a little pick me up. This year I have started a Staff Shout Out slide show. Staff members can email me with their shout outs for others. We used to have a shout out box but no one ever remembered to put anything in, email is so much easier! I create a slide show using Keynote on my iPad. The nice thing about keynote is that you can easily add music and make it autoplay. It's like a little shout out movie! For the December staff meeting, I created one with a holiday theme and holiday music in the background. Each slideshow takes about 5 minutes. It's a really fun way to lift the spirits at the beginning of a staff meeting! What do you do in your school to boost staff morale?
Welcome to my blog where I talk about all things school counselor and encourage others to Counselor Up!
