As children embark on their fifth grade year, this image
shows the great number of adults who will work
to serve each child well. It's a team!
The days of one-teacher-one-classroom are done. Today children are taught and served by multiple people in a school. There are specialists, special educators, office/lunchroom/custodial personnel, administrators, coaches, therapists, and more who teach and serve children each and every day. There is great promise in this team approach to teaching, and the positive challenge that this teamwork presents is how to optimize our collective efforts to serve every child well. Onward.
