It is clear that teachers need collegial relationships 24/7. Meeting with friends who will be at my school, in other districts, and other schools within my district, rejuvenated the fact that collaborating and supporting one another is KEY in education these days. The world is full of possibilities. Teacher friends help us filter, they help us with advice, they help form our thinking, they help us when we are feeling unable to achieve what were hoping for. Teacher friends are part of the never ending journey of learning. Keep them near as this is not a solo job, that is FOR sure.
