Capacity building Capacity building Presentation Transcript

  • Capacity Building BY: LUCRETIA RATLEY
  • What does capacity building mean? In a nutshell, doing what needs to be done, so students can learn, and be successful. Coming together as a school community to bring the students who are struggling up to speed.
  • What may be done to increase kinship among the faculty? In my school, my situation is unique as there is no trust between the administration and the staff, or at least a portion of the staff. Trust needs to be rebuilt and nurtured. As for kinship among the teachers, there IS a kinship among the teachers. We exchange ideas, and support each other even though there is the perception there is no support coming down.
  • How might the faculty become more of a professional community? Be willing to have people come into their rooms and observe in a non-judgmental capacity. Share successful teaching strategies at the Thursday morning staff meetings. Continue the open door policy of coming and asking how they are doing something or what they are doing. Continue to open communication between each other. Create an environment where it is ok to make mistakes. Mistakes are learning opportunities.
  • School and parent relationship Communicate with parents, the academic success of all students is what the priority is. How that is achieved is through collegial dialogue and exchanging of strategies and ideas. All ideas are welcomed and parents know their child best. Any suggestions or ideas from them, and successful strategies are welcomed. Trust must be built and nurtured between both parties. This is done with communication and consistency.
  • We are family! Trust! In my classroom, I spend the first quarter (8 weeks) earning the trust of my students. Once I have that, I have them. I am consistent, and follow through plays a large role. I express my expectations, and I practice behavior I want to see. I use RCCP and SEL activities to create an environment where mistakes are learning opportunities, and we support one another.
  • We are family! Cont. Sincerity. My children know the difference between real and fake. I lay it all out on the line, and expose myself emotionally. It is hard, but it works. When we need, we revisit an area to beef it up if we need too. i.e., team building or classroom building. I refer to all my students as brother, or sister, or family member. I have been told, I have the mom tone. I have been called mom more times than I care to admit.
  • We are family! Cont. While students may be assigned to a teacher’s roster, we are all a school family, and need to look out for one another. Luckily, I have had no one be offended by this approach, nor am I.
