I had a chance to talk with an AP and a principal about their educational philosophy and why they became principals, I got to talk with a +20 year veteran about why they DIDN'T decide to pursue administration, and I took an extra minutes to talk to the school resource officer and a military veteran teacher about the recent and excessive disciplinary action taken against the student in South Carolina.
Without going into detail about any of these conversations, I will say that taking the time to get to know your coworkers is worthwhile and rewarding. Knowing your students means knowing all the people that touch their lives. Give it a go. It's also great exercise.
