About This Book

This book provides school administrators with practical, easy-to-use, and inexpensive ways to reward and recognize the efforts of their staff. 

More than 100 ideas are divided into three categories based on the amount of effort they require. Recognizing and rewarding your staff can be as simple as writing a heartfelt thank-you note to a bus driver or as unexpected as taking a teacher’s grading duty for a night.

This invaluable guide will help principals and superintendents everywhere bring out the best in their teachers and staff members. The best part is that rewarding and inspiring your staff will be rewarding and inspiring for you too.
