10 Simple Ways to Make a Co-Worker’s Day

Gratitude goes a long way in making your co-workers feel valued, and respected. Showing gratitude does not have to be complex or expensive. Here are some simple ways to make a co-worker’s day:


#1

Grab their favorite drink for them in the morning. Whether it’s a coffee, or a soda from the vending machine, surprise caffeine will help start their day on a positive note!

#2

Pick up one of their bus duty, or recess duty, shifts if you can!

#3

Have your class write them a letter or create a card. Your student’s kind words and colorful drawings will lift their spirits.

#4

Create an appreciation board in the teacher’s lounge, so everyone can show each other appreciation. Start the board off by leaving your appreciation for a co-worker first!


#5

Send out an email shout-out praising their class, or an event that they’ve planned. They will appreciate their hard work being recognized.

#6

During your plan time, check to see if they need a bathroom break. Even if they don’t, the thought, alone, will show them that you are thinking of them.

#7

Take time to check in and chat with them about their school day. The opportunity to vent about the day helps to alleviate stress.


#8

Leave home baked treats in the teacher’s lounge. Baked goods always improve moods!

#9

Decorate your door with encourage notes, or quotes, that they can take when they need to feel uplifted.


#10

Deliver small candy bars to their mailboxes as a fun surprise. Everyone always appreciates chocolate!
