  • First, start small. You won’t be able to conquer the whole issue in one day, so don’t get in over your head. Just take it one step at a time.

  • Respect the teachers and their schedules. Educators, no matter their title, are all busy. They have a lot to do, and they all deserve respect. Plus, respecting them will help them build respect for you.

  • Don’t be afraid to say something. Communication is key. If you don’t say something, they probably won’t know. So if you want to collaborate, just ask.

  • Say “Thank you” to those who do collaborate. Showing gratitude can open the door for many more opportunities to collaborate. Say how much you appreciate their efforts to collaborate, and giving them a gift such as candy goes a long way.

 

SUGGESTIONS:

  • Ask if you can teach a mini-lesson on a particular technological device that may be new to the teacher and students.

  • Offer to teach students a mini-lesson on how to use encyclopedias, reference books, dictionaries, and thesauruses.

  • Share with teachers your areas of expertise. For example, maybe the class is studying U.S. Presidents, and you know a lot about a particular president. Offer your expertise, even if it’s only a 10 minute presentation.

  • For those that are extremely time-strapped during the school day, try out Pinterest. They have an option to have collaborative boards, where you and other teachers can pin together. For example, create a board that is devoted to finding all the resources about the solar system; teachers from any grade level and background can work together to find the resources and pin them to the board. Then, whenever a teacher is uses that subject in the classroom, they will have a place to start looking at information to build their lessons.
