Teacher Collaboration

Trish Detrick June 10, 2013

Presented at:
SCL Conference 2013


We were created to live in fellowship. As beautiful as it is to set a teacher in a classroom and watch the magic that occurs, we need one another to be successful and effective educators. We must communicate in order to meet our academic, behavioral, and cultural objectives. Each class, grade, or school division can not become individual units that function apart from the others and achieve the vision of the school. Teamwork can be messy. Conflict, tension, and frustration can quickly occur, but these obstacles must be overcome in order to reach our fullest potential as classical schools in quest of excellence. This workshop will discuss strategies for developing unity and collaboration within the walls of your school.
