    I teach at a school where we only have two math teachers.  I have students come to me all the time asking me for help from the other teacher.  I will show them a different way to solve the problem.  They go back to class and the other teacher gets upset.  The one idea of math I love the most is that there are so many ways to solve a given problem.  As humans we are all unique in our own way and we all have different ways of approaching a problem. 

    I know this does not answer your question, but I do know that some teachers just don’t like change.   I joined here so I can get some “coaching” and ideas.  I am always looking to improve my skills as a teacher and I am willing to trying.
