Great work can be accomplished with little budgets and big dreams and desires for increased student achievement. The focus of the Queens University of Charlotte and Myers Park Traditional School (MPTS) partnership was excellent teacher development that centered on learning as a community of teachers (both pre-service and in-service). What they found was the one key ingredient that partners must have for success is a team with passion and no fear of perspiration to put initiatives in place. Queens University of Charlotte and Myers Park Traditional School (MPTS) are neighbors and share property that is vital part of the atmosphere on both campuses. There is also a significant institutional history between Queens and MPTS. Their relationship goes much further than staff to staff. MPTS parents consider Queens to be a vital part of MPTS' success just as Queens considers MPTS as an asset to its program. Many MPTS teachers have received degrees from Queens and they have become a part of their Masters in School Leadership Program. Numerous MPTS staff are mid-degree at this time.
