Because of conflicting schedules, Liz and I were unable to meet face to face but had a nice phone conversation on co-teaching strategies. Co-teaching is something I struggled with this year for many different reasons, including not knowing all of the different curriculum, no common planning time, and a schedule change occurring in March. Liz made a great point in explaining to me that teachers need to meet prior to co-teaching to discuss their philosophies and teaching strategies before beginning a teaching relationship. She made a great comparison in saying you need to meet someone and date them before you are married! Co-teaching takes time and energy from both parties in order to be successful!
