Calling all teachers! What do you need to teach your students effectively?

My focus is on k-12 teachers, principles, administrators, etc. I know everyone is going to say money, but think outside of that please. Give me specifics.

Examples: leadership development, cultural understanding, curriculum (what subjects?), social project ideas, positive social platforms, online books, management training...

Thank you for your help and input

    Mar 17 2012: I think that teachers need to feel supported from all directions, from their peers, from the head of their department, from their principle/president, from the district, from parents, and even feel support from their students. The other thing that I think is super important is strong training and development. Both in their grade/subject area, but also in classroom management and how to effectively communicate with parents. Just a few thoughts.
