Sharing resources you have created to improve your teaching is not always the easiest step to take. Often times we become very attached to the things we create that we think that others may not use the resource as we originally hoped. This can be a tricky situation especially if you work as a team, or very closely with others. How can you still be a good teamplayer without feeling worried about the fate of your original resources?
