The Partnership in Teacher Excellence Program: A District-University Collaboration to Create Teacher Leaders
Bond, Nathan; Goodwin, Marilyn; Summers, Emily
Journal of Curriculum and Teaching, v2 n1 p91-100 2013
This article describes the conditions for establishing an advanced master's degree program that focuses on teacher leadership. The creation of the model is examined from the perspective of nine administrators from Eanes Independent School District in Austin, Texas, and Texas State University-San Marcos. These administrators collaborated to design the Partnership in Teacher Excellence Program (PTEP), with the purpose of developing teacher leaders who would become experts in their subject areas, deliver high-quality classroom instruction to their K-12 students, provide ongoing professional development to their colleagues in the district, and serve in a variety of teacher leadership roles. Emerging from anecdotal evidence are positive results that confirm the administrators' efforts to develop PTEP.
