      Chandler Barbour, a retired professor of education, has spent over 40 years in elementary school

      teaching, school administration, and university teaching. His strong interests in educational

      partnerships for teachers in training and appropriate curriculum for children have led to research and

      writing on school collaborations and networks. He is a co-author of two earlier publications:Partnerships

      in Education (1970), AACTE and The Teaching Clinic (1974), Ass'n of Teacher Educators,

      plus articles and reports for professional journals in Education. In retirement, Mr. Barbour lives in

      coastal Maine and devotes volunteer time to public school projects, church programs, and prison

      inmate counseling. He also serves as a board director for a fishing advocacy group, a church facilities

      board, and one regional hospital board.

      Nita H. Barbour is a retired University of Maryland professor with over 30 years in teaching,

      researching and curriculum program development for educational facilities in three states. Her

      professional work covers involvement with programs for populations ranging from preschool to

      university graduate courses. Nita's Fulbright Scholarship in language study in the 1950s led to a career

      long interest in the uses of language and the impact of language and culture on education. This interest

      has followed her into retirement as a feature of the language literacy programs she has established for

      preschoolers in her Maine community. Professor Barbour is a co-author of two earlier textbooks in the
