It was one of those weeks when I couldn't do it alone.
A number of teaching/learning issues arose that led me to colleagues' expertise.
The words, "I need you" were met with ready, skilled response with regard to issues big and small.
That's the kind of teamwork and camaraderie that builds a strong culture of service to students and each other--the kind of work that made me proud of the teaching/learning community I work with everyday.
No teacher can do the job alone. The work requires a skilled, varied team of committed professionals. How we build and nurture those teams is so important in relation to the quality of work and service we provide.
