It's the beginning of the year and you are the new art teacher at a brand new school. What's a good way to meet staff and become a stakeholder in the school community? One way that I have been able to meet staff while also helping teachers out is by establishing a connection through designing arts integrated lessons that make what I teach relevant to other faculty.
Try out this letter and see what you think! Drop a copy by each teacher personally or slip it surreptitiously into their mailboxes. I hope it helps you as much as it helped me to feel like a true stakeholder at your school. :)
