Your Dream Team

If you could create your own school, with a dream team of teachers, administrators, and staff, who would you choose, and how would you choose them?  Would you want the most "popular?"  Would your list include people who have learned all they need, who are "experts" in their field?  Would you want to be surrounded by those who did exactly what you asked?  Would you want people who agreed with you, who did "A" work, and expected that grade every time?  Would you want to have people who admit they have a lot to learn, who admit they do not have it all figured out?   Would you seek out those who welcome the grade of "C" the first time through because that means there is room for improvement?  How would you determine who was innovative, creative, curious?  If you could hire your dream team of leaders for your school, would you hire you?
