About the Author

Amanda Datnow is Professor in the Department of Education Studies and Associate Dean of Social Sciences at the University of California, San Diego. Vicki Park is Assistant Professor of Educational Leadership at San Diego State University.


`By studying four schools in four districts as they deal with both inside and outside pressures to improve teaching and learning, we learn the authentic challenges, as well as the needed conditions for building professional collaboration. Datnow and Park do an excellent job in teaching us how, and in what ways, schools cope, build and work on supporting what it takes to sustain shared goals, shared beliefs and a shared work ethic. This is a must read!'

-Ann Lieberman, Senior Scholar at Stanford University `Amanda Datnow and Vicki Park supply a vivid, detailed account of teacher collaborations that are propelled by teachers' own commitments to equity and excellence and that are informed by data that the teachers find relevant and meaningful. This book is the welcome result of in-depth studies of data use and teacher collaboration in elementary schools, further enriched by the authors' decades of professional experience with teachers and school leaders. Its take-away lessons and reflection points will resonate with teachers, leaders, and others seeking to build and sustain robust teacher collaboration that benefits children.' - Judith Warren Little, Carol Liu Professor of Education Policy emerita, Graduate School of Education, University of California Berkeley 'This is an honest and valuable exploration of the joys and challenges of genuine and meaningful professional collaboration, with engaging stories from the everyday world of pressured teachers, helpful takeaways and opportunities to reflect. Read and discuss it with your colleagues!' -Louise Stoll, Professor of Professional Learning, London Centre for Leadership in Learning, University College London Institute of Education
