What would the "Dream Team" school look like?

I was recently at a conference and, while I always enjoy the discussions, reflections and speakers, I must admit that my favorite part of this conference (and just about any I have been to) has been sitting around the lunch table, sharing experiences and being wowed by the quality of some Jewish educators in schools today.
