Hip hip hooray, it's time for more data collection!
Seriously. I'm not being as snarky as I may sound. (You know me so well). Even though "data" is becoming something of a dirty word to a lot of us, I'm actually collecting information I can use to answer the #1 question for school counselors: Am I effective?
A large part of the answer has to do with my relationship with the teachers in my building, and whether they view what I do as helpful to them and to their students. It's not enough to be a good counselor to the kids; I also have to effectively collaborate and communicate with the adults.
This--the end of my first full year in a new district--is the perfect time to find out how teachers think I'm doing (as nerve-wracking as that may be for a sensitive overachiever like me). So I've bravely turned to my new best friend, Google Docs, to create a teacher/staff survey.
UPDATE 9/3/2018: Here's the link to the document. I've had to change it to "view only" because people kept changing my original despite detailed instructions on how not to do that. It was very stressful. So now you'll have to make your own from scratch in your Drive, but you may of course use my questions if that helps!

Thanks for creating and posting this... I was just thinking about creating a survey for teachers. I like the ease of this and having it web based for data collection is fantastic.... I have never used Google Drive or Docs, what a great way to start! Much appreciated!! Looks super simple too! :)

Thank you, Beth! I'm so glad you think you can use it. I've gotten 9 responses back so far; the teachers are finding it quick and easy to complete. You're going to love Google Docs, and you'll quickly get the hang of it. Good luck!

it does not give the option to save. :(

Grrr, someone completely changed my original. However, you can still copy it: click on those three vertical dots in the upper right corner, and "Make a Copy" is one of the options. I think you have to have your own Google Drive to do that, but I'm not positive about that. I hope it works!

This is such a great resource!! I think I messed up and beg your forgiveness! I did something wrong when I edited it-- I made the copy and closed, but now my edits are showing up as yours! I am so sorry--

Hi there! I would love to see this resource as I am currently in the process of developing an end-of-year survey, but as you mentioned, it seems to have been completely changed. Many of the questions are missing. Would you be willing to share an updated version of the survey? You can change the settings to be "view only" for anyone who has the link so that others cannot change the questions again. Will you please email me if you post an updated survey? Thank you! I appreciate you sharing your resources!

Hi! This is a great resource! Would you mind sharing a copy with me so that I could use this survey to complete with my staff? Thank you!
