Personal Profile:

My efforts in recent years have been focused on getting educators, parents, school community members and students to engage in paradigm shifting dialog about the way schools are structured, organized and operate, and how the relationships among all members of the learning community can be redefined and strengthened. While I went off the deep end some time ago with my own thinking about what schools are and could be, this focus has also led me into designing networking systems for teachers which foster sharing and support for different and more effective ways of teaching.

For example, my colleagues and I in the Los Angeles Educational Partnership's teacher network advisory group (an NTPI site) have developed the Teacher Practitioner's Project, in which teachers observe other teachers as they work in the classroom and before students. This project is one part of a larger picture we have developed about how professional development should look and be transformed.
