Summary: This article describes a yearlong collaboration between a teacher (Morgan L. Trevathan) and a teacher educator (Joel C. Amidon) who explore what it means to provide support for mathematics teachers to improve practice, given the increased expectations and the plethora of external pressures (i.e., highstakes testing and valueadded assessments of teaching) toward a desired vision of mathematics instruction.
