Marshmallows and Spaghetti

The cashier only looked at me a little weird when I walked up to the checkout with 10 bags of marshmallows and 10 bags of spaghetti. “Uh, is this for something special.”

“Team building?”……”I teach school”….

Nodding followed. It was finally crystal clear.

My new principal had tasked me with providing a team building activity at PD tomorrow. Team builder is one thing I am not.

Instructional leader, maybe. Leader in Me Coordinator, sure. I will do anything you ask of me. But motivating teachers the day after field day and one day before Spring Break, this is definitely out of my comfort zone.

I hope they have fun!

  1. I bet your colleagues enjoyed it. What a great way to model for teachers the importance of teamwork. I am sure a few will replicate this activity with their students.
