Bringing your leadership skills into your grade level collaboration meetings will set a positive framework for the many changes that are upon us as we embrace the Common Core Curriculum. It is important to have at least one teacher leader in a grade level to maintain balance, listen to concerns, and guide the change process. Teacher leaders should present change with an open mind and be prepared to hear ideas from all members of the team as the collaborative process takes place to create a curriculum that will be effective for all students.
