I came into the SaA Coordinator role at the start of this past AY. It took me most of the year to wrap my own head around the IB MYP requirements, understand exactly where our school was at, and construct/document a vision for moving forward in regards to SL. I only started working with departments to look at curriculum connections in February really. That said, I feel I have good clarity and will be able to articulate that well to the school community next year, but we have a long way to go in regards to consistency, building student leadership, PD and overall school buy-in.
Something I am struggling with, which I am sure is true for many others as well, is that my administration says they really want this, they want to see service in action and they want students to connect with the community, but I don’t think they realize what an undertaking it actually is. I feel a lot of pressure in this role and sometimes feel overwhelmed thinking about all that needs to be done. Where do you all plan to start?
