Is This Your School?
• Teaching has lost its joy and been replaced with
“just a job” mentality
• Students come to school to watch teachers work
• Parents and teachers look for excuses & participate
in the blame game
• Staff feels isolated & has no time for social
interaction
• People cannot wait until retirement (even when
they have 12+ years left)
(C. Wagner, 2004)

What is School Culture?
• The “beliefs, attitudes, and behaviors that
characterize a school in terms of:
– How people treat and feel about each other;
– The extent to which people feel included and
appreciated; and
– Rituals and traditions reflecting collaboration and
collegiality.” (Gary Phillips, 1993)
• Link between a school's culture and student
achievement, staff satisfaction, and morale.
(Center For Improving School Culture, Bowling Green, KY)

Think About It
• What kind of a culture will a school develop
if it is not actively addressed?
If the fish in your aquarium are sick, do you
blame the fish?
Maybe you should check the water?

Features of School Culture
1. Collaboration = the degree in which people
work together, share information, and are involved
in productive discussions and debates.
2. Collegiality = a sense of belonging, emotional
support, and inclusion as a valued member of an
organization.
3. Organizational Structures = the traditions and
rituals that effect the everyday lives of ALL those
involved

• Train Small Groups & Large Groups
• When? Early release days, faculty meetings, grade level
team meetings, & planning periods
• Give information in short bursts, do not overload
• Implement items that will result in early, small-scale success

Moral-Building Activities
• Develop feelings of belonging by taking
time out for morale-building activities
– Initial Activities =
• Open lines of communications
• Give time for question & answer at trainings
• Introduce all PBS team members & give contact
information
• Have open PBS Team Meetings, anyone can join if
they have information to add

achievement (class with 100% attendance,
etc)
• Quote of the day
• Give out a strategy of the day: 2 ways to
incorporate the expectations into your
lesson plans
• Create and give out positive office referrals
13
Moral-Building Activities
• Have all faculty names placed in a hat. Everyone
draws a name and has to decorate a “medal”
(paper plate) for that person.
• Celebrate Individual Staff:
– Let Denise know she is special today
– I Appreciate __Sandra_____ Because:
• We think alike
• Have the same taste in music

• Teams of two: 1 person Blindfolded, 2 person gives 1 person a
set of instructions on how to build a structure out of spaghetti
noodles and marshmallows
• What have we got in common? (The team lists all the things
that the whole team has in common)
• http://www.teampedia.net/wiki/index.php?title=Main_Page

Names, Family Feud)
• Obstacle course (Hola Hoop, Hopscotch, Move an egg with a
spoon, Hit a Golf Ball Into a Cup)
• Team Trivia
15
Creative Ideas
• “Don is Special” Day!
– Create posters and hang all over campus
– Create stickers to wear on your shirt
– Send random emails
• “Guess Who?” Have each staff member
write a paragraph about themselves. One
time week send it out over email and have
staff guess who it is.
16
Organizational Structures
•Assessing Your School
17
Assessing Your School
• You can identify the behavioral expectations within
5 minutes of entering the school
– Posters are everywhere (halls, classrooms, etc)
– Hear faculty using a common language
– See it being referred to during instruction
• Students state the behavioral expectations
– Ask 10 randomly selected students (ask from different age,
gender & ethnic groups)
• Students are recognized for appropriate behavior
– Ask 10 randomly selected students if they have been
acknowledged for appropriate behavior in past week
– Note if you see all faculty given out any school-wide tokens
18
Assessing Your School
• Faculty, staff & families know behavioral
expectations
– ALL Faculty & staff know expectations
– Substitute teachers know expectations
– Families know expectations
• Student to Student interactions reflect expectations
– Students prompt and support behavioral expectations
• Physical environment is cared for
• Students approach adults

4 Ingredients to an
Energy-Filled Workplace
1. Choose Your attitude
2. Play
3. Make their Day
4. Be present
21
CHOOSE YOUR ATTITUDE!
• Most of us believe our attitudes are caused directly by
outside influences like unpleasant experiences or
negative people. But while external pressures may
trigger our feelings, we are the ones wearing those
feelings like a suit of clothes.
• When you are doing what you are doing, who are you
being?
– Are you being impatient and bored OR are you being
WORLD FAMOUS!
– Who do you want to be at work?
– Ask yourself, is my attitude helping me/others?
22
Choose Your Attitude

Energetic
Angry
Caring
Disinterested
Vital
Bitter
23
PLAY!
• People who find ways to incorporate “play” into
their daily lives approach their work, responsibilities
and challenges with energy and enthusiasm.
• Playful work we do allows us to find creative ways
to engage our students
• If we don’t find constructive ways to meet
students’ universal need for fun, students’ will
devise their own, not-so-constructive ways (Kriete, R.
2003)
24
MAKE THEIR DAY!
• Look for as many ways as you can to create
great memories!
• It moves past just being civil or pleasant—it’s
taking that extra step you didn’t have to
take. And that makes all the difference.
• Teachers who had high quality relationships
with their students had 31% fewer discipline
problems. (Marzano, R.J. and Marzano, J.S. 2003)
25
BE PRESENT!
• Being “present” for another person has a
powerful effect. Think about how good it feels
when someone gives you her or his undivided
attention, focusing on your needs and feelings.
Now think about how it feels when someone
with whom you are “interacting” barely looks
at you.
– Actively listen (suspend judgment, don’t think about the
comeback)
– Talk to me like I was your long lost friend
