Millersville University Secondary Education PDS

Millersville University of Pennsylvania (MU) has over 150 years of proud heritage in the preparation of teachers. This article describes how the Secondary Education Professional Development School (PDS) Program model has transformed Millersville University's secondary teacher education from a traditional teacher preparation program into a dynamic learning community. In the PDS program all members share a common vision that both unites us and challenges us to engage in work that benefits the wider education community. Our mission is to improve the teaching and learning for secondary students in the classrooms where PDS interns learn and work. We believe this shift in focus, from developing our pre-service teachers to making a positive impact on the classrooms where our students work, has been the driving force behind the PDS and continues to push us to serve our partner schools in deeper and more collaborative ways.
