• "Co-Teaching is not a teaching assignment- co-teaching is a teaching experience!"

    Co-teaching has recently been adopted by all DPS109 Elementary schools due to its many benefits. In co-taught classrooms, teachers get to collaborate in lesson design and capitalize on the experiences of two professionals with different areas of expertise. In addition, this model will allow us to teach using a much wider variety of lesson formats. For example, we will regularly be able to work with students in small groups or even split the class in half to reduce the teacher:student ratio.
