Collaborative Teaching for Stronger School Community

“I truly feel that if I did not have these people supporting me as a teacher, I couldn’t keep moving.” – Katie, on her coworkers

In school, collaboration is key. This week, we’re discussing the importance of carving out time for teachers to work together to solve tough problems and share inspiration. (We’ll also talk about why staff meetings don’t always count as collaborative time!) From veteran teachers and those who are just starting their careers, we’ve gathered reflections on how collegiality bolsters student achievement, reduces turnover in the profession, and fosters strong community. We’ll also bring you the latest headlines in education news from around the country: S.B. 83 looms over higher education institutions in Ohio, sex ed. faces a setback in Gwinnett County, GA, and MOOSE are on the loose in Maine. (You’ll just have to listen.)
