Collaboratively developed a cool tool lesson for entire staff to review “on task” behavior expectation during independent reading time.
This tasked helped me learn that even though I believe in shared leadership and collaboration, there will be instances that it is best for one person to make the decision or complete the task. In this instance, I was the one who had the best idea of what to plan for the lesson. It was more efficient for me to plan the lesson and the other team members review it than it was to have all of us plan the lesson together.

If students do not grasp material they should be retaught and then reassessed at a later time.…
