Building a sense of team or family in your school is important. While most administrators start the year off with an ice-breaker at the first faculty meeting of the year, it is a good idea to consider extending the teambuilding efforts throughout the year. Whether you continue to include team building activities into faculty meetings or incorporate them into small group, grade level, or committee meetings, the efforts are necessary to keep staff members engaged and loyal. The good news about these activities is that there are so many out there to choose from so you don't need to reinvent the wheel.
