    I've been on teams that tried to plan everything together and met too much and ended up at odds. I've been on a team that planned so little together it was practically not a team. Obviously, the ideal is in between.

    What are some good things for a grade level team to aim for? What's genuinely helpful for you? How do we find balance?

    Personally, I like having a common end goal, such as an assessment or final project, and then the freedom to plan how I’d like to in order to get there. I also appreciate shared ideas and resources when someone makes or finds something helpful, without the requirement to use it.

    Meetings should be short, sweet, and to the point. And if you can send it in an email, even better. I dislike meetings to start with. I dislike meetings that could have been an email even more.
