I can't stand "sit and get" faculty meetings where teachers just have to listen to someone else go on and on constantly. I think it's always a good idea to let teachers have opportunities to share success stories with one another at the beginning of every faculty meeting. One great idea for a principal is to take three "Kudos" candy bars to every faculty meeting and say "Here's three kudos for the first three people who are willing to come up and share something positive that you witnessed one of your collegues do this week." The teachers who take the bars, stand up and actually give the Kudo to a peer, but the best part is that they then share something nice about their peer with the entire faculty.
