As previous posters mentioned, communication is key! It can be challenging but carve out time to meet formally and then informally as needed.

I have to say having three classes is going to be hard as a teacher. We had switched with just one other teacher for the past 3 years and then went to a three teacher team this year because we downsized.

And for planning, it may be somewhat easier but I have IEP kids in 2 classes and gifted in one class. So my differentiating takes just as much time to plan as planning for multiple subjects.

Be prepared! The grading/assessment aspect is time consuming to me. You may wish to try staggered due dates for big writing assignments for example.

Best of luck. It may be a good trial for your team to start for half a year at first and work out the bugs
