This study was aimed at exploring the current practices and future possibilities of professional development for secondary school English teachers in Taiwan. The participants in the study were two secondary school English teachers. Data were collected and analyzed via a qualitative research approach. The findings indicated that secondary school English teachers in Taiwan have encountered challenges, such as enormous English language proficiency gaps among their students, as well as having to adopt a grammar and testing orientation in English instruction. While these teachers do have various opportunities to participate in professional development activities, these activities do not necessarily meet their goals. The participants in this study have considered graduate study, workshops of interest, project collaboration with college faculty members, and teacher professional learning communities as effective ways to promote teacher professional growth. Finally, the researche( proposed a new teacher professional development model, instructional coaching, with the hope that this model will provide English teachers in Taiwan with a timely, school-based, gradual-release assistance and support.
