84: It’s Not What it Seems

Change is no stranger to the educational field. When change comes, we need to withhold judgment and emotion until enough time has passed for things to pan out. By this point, we now have perspective and more accurate information for our judgment or opinion to be based upon. At first glance, nothing is ever as it seems. Tune in to hear what you can do to ease frustration and disillusionment on the job.


  • Let the smoke clear, the fog lift and then draw conclusions
  • It’s hard to build relationships overnight
  • Your attitude contributes to your outcome
  • Be patient as the new unravels
  • Momentum is more accurate of actual results than your first up to bat

About the author, Gretchen

I am a teacher trainer and coach. Working elbow to elbow with teachers and teacher leaders to ensure instructional proficiency and student achievement soar lights me up. We have a real need in our nation for strong educators to remain in the field. My blog, book, podcast, courses and instructional materials are geared towards empowering teachers (and those that lead them) to receive the support needed to grow and thrive today, tomorrow and always.
