Sep 11, 2022

James Moffett is a principal in Kansas and he loves kids.

  • Pretty empathetic
  • Relationships
  • Teri Barilla
  • Question things I did as an educator
  • If you were doing these things before the pandemic, you were as ready as you could be for the pandemic
  • If you wouldn’t accept it from your supervisor, don’t dish it out to your kids.
  • Accountability, structure, consequences, - all structured in love.
  • It’s such a mindset shift for educators because it’s not how school was for us.
  • Model it, live it, let them experience it.
  • How do we help schools see that kids are respected on day 1.
  • Teachers are structured beings
  • Each vs. every.
  • The Rabbit Effect
  • How to be a transformative principal? Rest and recover and put more focus on the relationships you have in your building.
