From October 2004 to June 2006, I worked as a curriculum leader across 18 elementary schools as part of an Alberta Incentive for School Improvement project focused on the reform question: How does inquiry transform learning environments? As a curriculum leader, my role included, but was not limited to, the introduction, articulation, and development of the project's main tenets and goals among the teaching staffs of participating schools. In support of professional development, I worked closely with teachers in discussing, planning, and co-teaching from an inquiry-based perspective. As I developed close relationships with teacher practitioners, my position acted as a catalyst for pedagogical change in the classroom and supported broader institutional reform.
