Working with a co-teacher in a classroom can be beneficial to both the teachers and students. As co-teachers there are different techniques that my co-teaching partner and I can use to deal with disagreements in our classroom. As, the special education specialist it is my responsibilities to ensure all students have been assessed and tested for the school year. One, disagreement in the classroom not knowing the lesson plan. As the special education teacher, I am open to any suggestion from the classroom teacher. We both have to communicate about the lesson plan and plan it together. We should have all materials ready and know where they are and how to use the material. Second, disagreement is the learning environment. One has to teach and the other observe, one teach and one assist. We both have to team teach as a team. We must remember teamwork makes the dream work. Third, disagreement is not communicating. As co-teaching partners should be great communicators with each other. As co-teaching partners we must deal with everything professional as possible. Fourth, disagreement is attacking. We both must realize that no attacks are personal. Co- teachers need to understand every effort is for both the teachers and students. We both have to remember our educational goals.
