Are You Part of the Team?

Teaching children takes a team: a team of teachers, family members, students and even community members.  For best effect, the team works together to challenge, nurture and inspire young children towards optimal growth and development.  When the team is working well there's communication, shared goals and effective, responsive effort.
  • How do you foster a team approach for your children and students?
  • What do you do to contribute to the team?
  • How often do you share your thoughts, questions and ideas?
  • Do you read related newsletters, correspondence and research?
  • Do you reply to emails and letters?
  • Do you plan targeted interventions with the team?
I want to increase my awareness, activity and contribution as a team member to better my teaching of young children.  The first step is recognizing that it takes a team; the next is gathering as much information as I can to inform this work.  Hence, I invite your links, suggestions and questions.
