If you are a teacher in a school building, this should be one of the first people you reach out to. They are the ones who help you to re-arrange your classroom, bring you supplies, and keep everything looking nice and clean. I have worked in 3 different schools. In my first year of teaching, nobody told me to connect with our custodians, and my first year would have gone so much more smoothly if I had just connected with them. I was a science teacher, so I was getting my students' hands dirty.... along with my classroom. I learned over that first year how much I would depend on our custodians to help. That was such a valuable lesson for me. The next school building I worked in was over 60 years old. One of the first things I did was reach out to our team of custodians, and I am so glad I did. I saw how amazing our team was because regardless of the age of the school, that place shined with cleanliness. You could see the pride that team took - Here's to you, Mr. Jones and team, you ROCK! At the last school I worked at, I was the technology person. This means I had to move all tech, clean all tech, and make sure each classroom was set up for success. I could have never done it without our custodian. Mr. Tony helped me with a smile on his face and always made sure that each classroom was taken care of. Thanks for all you did for us!
