combating the November blues: a well-timed “un-meeting”

With the holiday approaching and me now writing about keeping our heads in the game, I walked into a very well-timed “un-meeting” this morning.  The idea behind an “un-meeting” was first introduced to me in Daniel Pinks’s Drive.  I have never started a day with so much laughter.  Well, laughter that wasn’t coming from podcasts I listen to on my mind-numbing commute to work.  In the un-meeting we played a few silly teambuilding games to embarrass ourselves and just generally bring our minds out of the grind.  I was very pleased.  It’s not often we get to celebrate silliness with each other.  We see a lot of it in our classrooms, but, just once, the teachers got their recess.
