This day and age a collaborative team of educational professionals working together to help close achievement gaps among our students is and will continue to be imperative, and is another ongoing goal in which I feel passionate about as a new librarian. Not only is it imperative for teachers to collaborate but today’s student needs to obtain collaborative skills that prepare them to be global communicators. To successfully achieve this goal as the librarian I will need to ensure that the educators I work with meet together regularly to discuss, share, and plan meaningful instruction to meet the needs of our students. The following sources will help serve as aids to guide us through our collaborative journey: • As an educator I have become familiar

I approach collaboration as a team player, and I believe students need more than one person to guide them to their full educational potential. Also, active and prepared participation of weekly PLC meetings with the teachers of my special education students to plan collaborative curriculum have increased results in math and reading substantially. Participating in co-teaching furthers my repertoire of knowledge to assist my students. I have learned a vast amount from sharing and consulting with colleagues regarding students, observing mentoring teachers, and planning activities to ensure growth in students.
Our goal is to work collectively and cohesively by converging our mindsets and strengths together.

After being asked to choose an administrator to interview, I did not have to think twice about whom I would be interested in interviewing to speak on the terms of collaboration.

Additionally, she is the head of the English department, which consists of advocating for the department. Mrs. Bernard teaches an eighth grade English class as well as a sophomore Honors class.

According to the text, Dr. Alex Mahdi was committed to the idea of collaborative decision making. However, Dr. Mahdi utilized an individual and authoritative decision leadership style when he set up committees and appointed teachers to serve on his newly established committees in addition to their department level committees. I believe Dr. Mahdi has the resources necessary for success. He has the opportunity to boost morale, change the culture and climate of the school, and build trust worthy relationships through collaborative interaction.
Librarian-teacher collaboration is fundamental to improve student academic achievement through the implementation of the curriculum, supporting active learning, engaging students, providing differentiated instruction, and facilitating the use of multiple and varied educational resources.
Two of my goals that I have are to collaborate more with other student organizations and IUPUI. I think it is important to collaborate with other student organizations because it is a fantastic opportunity for SPA to build relationships with a wide and diverse audience.

I asked Mrs. Barkley if she worked with other teachers to plan and jointly facilitate learning; she told me that she personally does not. She said that she never combines classes or teaches with another teacher in the same classroom. She said the only thing that the teachers do together is come together in meetings and discuss progress of their classes and test scores. This came as a shock to me, I thought that teachers would be meeting often to combine curriculum in a way that’s meaningful. I thought that teachers would want to allow for cross-curricular projects to allow students to make the connections between subjects. When I am a teacher, I would like to work with other teachers to jointly facilitate learning, if possible.

Since, I will be teaching Math 4-8, I will be using the Think-Pair-Share strategy to encourage classroom participation in order to solve mathematical problems. I will give students a problem, and students will have time to think about it individually. Then they can work in pairs to solve the problem, which will allow them to express their ideas, consider those of others, and discuss possible answers. Finally, the students can share their answers, and ideas with the class.
Within the military field setting, there is a vast amount of job roles involved. There are administrators, physicians, engineers, electricians, repair technicians of all sorts, storekeeper personnel, and sometimes contractors. Without any or each of these, a piece would be missing and the military chain would not run well. In my workplace there are many advantages to having a multicultural collaborative workforce. Some of these advantages include higher morale and broader viewpoint , plus a better possibility of smooth transition during expansion. A collection of people with varying backgrounds and life experiences are more likely to share different perspectives on a workplace challenge. Providing a culturally sensitive care to any patient
As shifts in education move towards authentic design-based learning tasks that engage students academically and intellectually, it is increasingly difficult for teachers to teach in
Mutual trust and respect strengthens collaborative partnerships and while taking on a more proactive leadership role will help show teachers and staff members that you care and respect the role they have in the school setting. In order for successful collaboration to begin staff members need build up their trust and respect for one another by effectively communicating with one another creating an environment in which individuals are free to express their feelings and thoughts without being judged or looked down upon. One way to strengthen trust and respect is being able to educate staff members to have a better understanding of the role we as librarians have in the school and be able to show them that we are passionate about our role as librarian
Our school utilizes the ILT process to implement consistent school-wide best practices to improve student achievement. As the ILT lead, it is crucial to work together with the grade level representatives to plan and provide the best education for the students. Collaboration does not happen naturally, and the Community Contributor indicators guided me to work together effectively. During the meetings, I used the Seven Norms of Collaboration to build group energy, commitment, and effectiveness. I contributed by sharing ideas and by soliciting input from others. During the meetings, I collaborated to create a public agenda, established roles and documented minutes to ensure productive meetings. Collaboration empowered the ILT members to determine the ILT goals and to discuss, plan and
Krischner et al. (2006) in there article describes the social and cognitive factors driving teamwork in collaborative learning environments; mainly he focused on team learning beliefs and behaviors by performing different experiments. According to him a team is more than a group of individuals in the same space either physical or virtual. This article describes when and how teams in collaborative learning environments engage in building and maintaining mutually shared cognition and reveals conditions in the interpersonal context that contribute to engage in knowledge building practices. They present a team learning belief and behaviors model which is as shown in the figure:
Although much of my work is done independently; I do have the pleasure of collaborating with the Office Manager and Physicians on a daily basis.

It is my belief that collaborating within a team increases work performance and ensure that information is appropriately distributed; as I am the liaison for the allergy clinic. These collaborations help ensure that goals are completed in a timely and efficient manner.
