The creation of the model is examined from the perspective of nine administrators from EanesIndependent School District in Austin, Texas, and Texas State University – San Marcos. These administratorscollaborated to design the Partnership in Teacher Excellence Program (PTEP), with the purpose of developingteacher leaders who would become experts in their subject areas, deliver high-quality classroom instruction to theirK-12 students, provide ongoing professional development to their colleagues in the district, and serve in a variety ofteacher leadership roles. Emerging from anecdotal evidence are positive results that confirm the administrators’efforts to develop PTEP.
