I believe that one lesson I learned from George Washington will definitely help my Challenge team and the ICORE Case team, which is showing care and respecting everyone in the team no matter what his or her role is, and trying to find a solution that contains everyone’s idea. I also know from Lombardi that once the whole team has agreed on a set of rules, it is important for everyone to follow the rule to keep everything in order. Then all team members will have a strong and connected relationship, which is helpful to bring our project to a higher level, since we all contribute to the
This process was not a time consuming rule because we are all efficient, honest, and enthusiastic which helped us move fast. Power As I reflect back on what was taught about power and my group interaction, I was able to identify the types of power we executed. It took time referring to my notes and thinking about how what I learned coincide together. To make the correspondence I made note of each group member and what power qualities everyone posed and how as a group we responded in regards to power.
Reflective Observation (Watching) Despite some arguments about the framework at the beginning of the project, my team is very cooperative, and we have the same perspective, since we already had working experience in previous assignments. Our solid team was confirmed when we had a ‘cone dance exercise’ that we can complete smoothly and very fast. As the leader, I facilitated the whole work process to enhance group effectiveness, solve problems and achieve the shared goals.
The paperwork behind special education is a full time job in itself, including meeting timelines, keeping up with the sequential format of the paper process, and finally writing effective individual education plans. Green (2013) states in chapter three that individuals working within an organization will strengthen student involvement especially when sharing the responsibilities. As a leader of this group, it is important to make sure each member of the team is aware of what they are responsible for, especially during team meetings. Using the descriptive theory approach, as stated in Green’s book seems appropriate, because as a leader, there is the need for a common balance among the team members (2013). Through this balance, the members are able to collaborate and come up with new instructional strategies that may work for the child at hand, as well as others.
Leadership plays a large role in these activities. I show leadership in group work by taking charge and ensuring everyone is doing their part in it. I try and make sure one person is not doing all the work. In the classroom I show leadership by paying attention and turning all the assessments in on time. People say being polite and having manners will help you in life.
I learned a lot about myself as a teacher and how to help these students individually without neglecting the rest of the class while tending to their needs. It wasn't difficult for me to walk by Kiden's desk and praise her for what she was doing, or give her praise during whole group interaction. However, this meat the world to her and boosted her self confidence in the skill and concepts that were being taught. In the same way I was able to help Kiden, I was also able to help Pau and Georgia with the things they needed such as reading the instructions to them one-on-one or checking in on them throughout the assessment just to make sure they were on the right track.
The strengths influence every level of the organization, and it is well and widely researched. It is very appealing since the followers believe it is rational. It is process-focused, transitional leader treats leadership as a process occurring between the followers and leaders(Suresh. A. Rajini. J 2013). Transformational leadership has extensive sweep that integrate and incorporate other leadership models.
As a team member I was able to present myself and was able to put my views and ideas. This project helped me to understand myself better and I realised that I can work in any situation with anyone. I will always try to work in similar collaborative approach and try to improvise myself. It was a good learning opportunity for me. I have gained experience and skills from my teammates during the project.
Supervisory Platform As a supervisor, I will never forget where I came from. I will always be a student and a teacher. Keeping that in mind, my main focus will be to work with teachers within a democratic and collaborative environment that fosters relationships and growth. My approach to supervision will be one where principal and educators are part of the supervisory process.
He allows the class to lead the discussion that empowered them to become involved in the learning process.

The overall experience in his classroom is extremely positive. He promotes a positive learning experience and includes all of the students.

When completing the Enneagram Personality inventory, I found my dominant personalities were the perfectionist and the peacemaker. Each of these personalities aided in my decisions when working with Mr. and Mrs. Wilson and the rest of the collaboration team. My first trait, the perfectionist, helped me to be very productive and orderly when putting together an agenda for the collaboration meeting. In order for the meeting to go smoothly, it was very important for me to have a detailed agenda in which I knew I could cover all the information that the Wilson’s needed to hear and also give everyone a chance to voice their comments and concerns during the meeting as well.
Having experience in conducting group did not decrease the level of preparation and anxiety that came with the preparation for this exercise. However, the experience made the actual process of conducting group therapy less intimidating once the session started. This experiential exercise fostered the ability to look at myself as a group facilitator and be able to plan for group; it allowed me to be in tuned to the ongoing process occurring during the session and the ability to reflect after it was completed. In preparation, my co-facilitator
