Trust is an interesting concept.
We can give it away.
It is paramount to what we as educators do.
In the absence of Trust we are unable (or unwilling) to take risks.
In the absence of Trust we are unwilling to say what is on our minds.
In the absence of Trust we get compliance, but not collaboration.
In the absence of Trust can true learning occur?
If we are invested in learning and creating a caring culture in schools, we must have faith in those around us and Trust their intentions.
To build trust, we must do what we say and listen to what is said.
What is our collective potential if we trust each other and trust our students.
Wouldn’t it be something to find out?
