I was recently reading on Leadershipfreak.com about three types of people you should surround yourself with as a leader.
The post was very interesting. Starting out with the statement "The enemy of success is isolation." Now, this for sure applies to leaders but how about teachers in the classroom? Most teachers are in isolation. Rarely do they leave their room and they stay there most of their career.
Are these teachers unsuccessful? I do not believe that they are totally but as cliche as it sounds, it does take a village to raise a child. Teachers need to be getting out of their rooms as much as they can in order to network with other teachers from other disciplines. In order to be successful in the classroom, we must network together learning from one another.
