"As a first-year teacher, learning from other teachers in my cohort has been a jumpstart to my career. Not only have I been able to acknowledge effective practices from those who have more experience than I do, but I've had the opportunity to connect with teachers from other places and environments. I can recognize the common language we all speak and shared appreciations we have for the profession. Yet, I discover the real rewards within the differences between all of us. Diversity and shared understandings have helped build a robust collective to say the least."
