As far as effective professional development goes, Gretchen says that the Writing Project helped her. She participated in the summer institute and, within the following two years, three graduate courses cotaught by the local Writing Project and Coastal Carolina University. ’’ To elaborate, she says: I think the fact that I love being a student as well as a teacher has been the biggest thing for me. I love sitting in classes and learning and sharing ideas. I think that is more useful than any theory class that can be offered.
I think that is the reason why there is a problem with teacher retention—we work our asses off and get very little in return. Sometimes you need more than the intrinsic value of knowing you have imparted . . knowledge to our youth. Give out silly awards to a few staff members each month, stick a candy bar in each person’s mailbox every so often, do something that is a bit silly but fun. There are so many teachers that work so hard . . and do a great job but are too meek to make themselves recognizable; this way everyone gets a little something.
I wanted to give that back in a way that no other students in my class could. I was the only African-American in the room. It was at that precise moment that the seed was planted. . Tracy speaks to the ‘‘teaching who we are’’ concept (Palmer 1997) as she continues: Over the years I have been blessed with mentors, role models, and sisterfriends who take the time to see more than just a teacher, but look me in the eye and see a human being. I’ve had many opportunities to share my inspirations and struggles in safe, [nonthreatening] environments.
