This article describes the Second Wind program at the University of Massachusetts where the teacher education department focuses on working with inservice teachers rather than undergraduate or graduate preparation. The program serves physical educators in Massachusetts schools with one full-time coordinator and 2 part-time graduate assistants who work with teachers in planning, conducting, and evaluating educational programs that are useful in improving physical education. Second Wind provides resources and organizes programs that meet teacher-identified needs.
