Non-Willingness to work through differences of opinion

Each person should explain their feelings through writing instead of a possible verbal confrontation .

Find a common ground on anything and work from there .

If all else fails, follow the chain of command: talk to mentor, department head, their department head, and as a last resort, an administrator .

No common plan time

Finding time during school day, before or after school, or email communication between individuals to discuss where you are, where you’ve been and where you would like to go.

Each person should know what instruction is going to happen next class.
