This paper explores what highly effective master teachers think are the most important professional development experiences for improving teaching effectiveness. This paper describes the importance of professional development experiences across the teacher career continuum and includes considerations for policymakers at all levels for improving professional development experiences and their link to teacher evaluation systems. The findings in this paper are based on the results of a recent exploratory survey of National and State Teachers of the Year. The full report on these survey results, From Good to Great: Exemplary Teachers Share Perspectives on Increasing Teacher Effectiveness Across the Career Continuum  (Sherratt et al., 2014) is available from the Center on Great Teachers and Leaders (gtlcenter.org).
