This year I am not the only one teaching a grade 1/2 combined class at my school. Instead, there are two other people who have joined me in the experience. No longer am I isolated and working on my own. Now I have two teachers to share ideas with – and two others who are helping to improve the programme I created last year. As we work together I am helping them not only with activities that worked last year, but I am giving them suggestions on how to manage the grade 1s and 2s. It is a pleasure for me to meet during lunch to discuss what we will teach in the following week. And I love that I am not working in isolation on the long range plans for our classes.
This week I am grateful that I am part of a grade 1/2 team and that I am no longer working in isolation.
