Shroyer, M. Gail; Yahnke, Sally J.; Miller, Teresa; Dunn, Cindi; Bridges, Nancy Y.
Educational Considerations, v42 n1 p3-10 Fall 2014
The purpose of this article is to share the history of one Professional Development School (PDS) partnership in an effort to help others reflect, set visions, and move forward into a new educational future. The emergence, development, and continuation of this partnership was dependent upon finding ways to create a growth-oriented environment, nurturing all those within that environment, and then sustaining that culture as it continuously changed into something newer and even more exciting. The 25-year history of this unique collaborative effort will be shared through this perspective of organizational change.
