The Professional Development Associate - Conceptualizing the Role
I just posted an entry that showed a conceptualization of they hybrid educator role. In the partnership in which I was raised as a teacher educator and a hybrid educator, we had a specific role called a Professional Development Associate. Over the course of my preparation, I tried to reconcile my identity in this role and all of the demands and tasks that were being asked of me. I know that others are experiencing this same dilemma, so I have posted an image that I hope will help others conceive of this role in the context. This image can also be found in my dissertation - Conceptualizing Supervision in the Professional Development School Context: A Case Analysis on p. 16. It is Figure 1-1.
