Everyone seems to be on the same boat here. If we did not have peers to collaborate with, it would be a hard job to do. We should rely on others to help us, and allow us to help them, and those that are just too good to do so, should not be in this profession. I have seen the teachers that think they are the mavericks of the grade level, it is sad to see them working alone. If we didn’t have someone to bounce ideas off, to cry on a shoulder, to say why doesn’t this work for me, then it would be a wasted job, and we would have kids that would not benefit from the thoughts of others. In the end, we do this for our students, it is them who benefit from us thinking outside the box, and it is them who benefit from our peer groups working together.
