The Classroom Teacher as Teacher Educator. ERIC Digest 89-7.
Bartunek, Holly M.
The school-based teacher educator (SBTE) is a classroom teacher who is responsible for preservice, inservice, or continuing education at a school or district level while maintaining a primary work location in an elementary or secondary classroom. Teachers in this role have the potential for enhancing faculty morale by responding to both the professional and personal development needs of the faculty and by utilizing other teachers as resources within the designed program. SBTE program possibilities can be accommodated to the needs of the school, the school culture, and the developmental stages of the teachers. A description is given of four types of SBTE programs: (1) mentorship programs; (2) a resident supervisor's program; (3) a regional staff development center associate program; and (4) a peer coaching program.
