Snack Attack!

As soon as recess began, the room was a flurry of teachers, chatting, filling up their plates, and enjoying the spread. Today’s Snack Attack was a hit! As we snacked, we caught up with our fellow colleagues, enjoying the opportunity to chat with people we don’t get to see often. The rule during Snack Attack is “no shop talk,” so once a week, we all get together for a half hour and get to know one another a little bit more. Since it started 6 weeks ago, we have seen an improvement in staff morale.

Before
During
After- not much left!!

Frances, the Head of the Junior School, and I hosted Snack Attack today. Next week it’ll be the foreign language teachers. All teams host on a rotation, about once every 8 weeks. We also rotate the day of the week, so that if someone has recess duty, they don’t always miss out. I hope we continue Snack Attack next year, too!

    I love your piece. It makes me think of the monthly birthday celebrations that were part of our school culture. I wonder if and when they will return. I don’t think our staff is ready yet.

      I’ve had monthly birthday parties at my previous schools too. It’s a great way to connect. They might not be ready now, but maybe someday soon!

      It was fun! I think I forget that not everyone gets to do this. We are relatively safe in our little bubble in Jeju. Hoping you get to do this again soon!
