A thoughtful card or email can make a big difference. Thank them for an idea or book suggestion.

By being a good listener and if needed, a problem solver. I think we all just want to know that we’re not alone in this and sometimes it really feels like we are.

I purposely leave a note in my peers mailbox. If I notice something amazing I celebrate with them. We also have weekly shoutouts where we send accolades to our peers. It’s looked forward to each week.

I also leave notes in colleagues mailboxes as a way to encourage and cheerlead them. It’s a simple thing that lifts them up!

We have a school wide weekly newsletter that our admins build and there are always shoutouts in it from things they see and notice and we are able to submit shoutouts as well.
