What Does a Master Teacher Do?

Apropos the current buzz on teacher-coaching, the Arizona Republic interviews a Mesa educator who's actually doing it:

As a master teacher, I provide professional development for the teachers on our campus. That means I teach an instructional or a learning strategy during an hourlong meeting once a week to small groups of teachers throughout the day. We then follow up by observing teachers and provide them with feedback. As a master teacher, I coach teachers, provide demonstration lessons and field test new learning strategies by teaching students. In addition I try to keep my own instructional practices honed so I teach an algebra and a reading class.
