      Read the book Collaboration and Co-Teaching by Hongsfeld and Dove.

        I have never co-taught before but have done some collaborative work with teachers and the number one advice I can give is communication! Sit down and have a planning meeting with your co-teacher once a week or however often you find is necessary. Here is a good thread on the topic as well:

          Find the video "The Power of Two". Awesome breakdown of the steps for developing a good co-teaching relationship along with video examples.

            I completely agree with Jan's answer. If you trust each other as peers and both keep the kids' needs first, your students will see you as equal partners--that's huge. Co-teaching can be truly amazing, really challenging, and some days it's both. But if you remember that you are partners in meeting kids' needs, it can also be wonderfully rewarding.
