SamTastic Weekly Tip: 5/18/15 - Discuss your First Responders


This week’s SAMtastic tip is: discuss your First Responders. Which of your First Responders have made the most difference for you? Take time to talk with these staff members and show them how they have helped you increase your instructional time. Take a few minutes to show them your Dashboard. Make the connection for them that they make a difference.

Which of your First Responders is not working out? Discuss as a team why it isn’t working. Is it a lack of training? Do you have the “right” person assigned? A few minutes of reflection now can be very productive.

PS: Save the Date: 9th Annual National SAM Conference, Tucson, Arizona, JW Marriott Starr Pass Resort, January 21-23, 2016 — Registration opens Labor Day
