Courses and workshops for educators

Courses & Workshops at the Teacher Learning Center

Professional Learning of Teton Science Schools is excited to offer online and in person professional development opportunities for aspiring and current educators. All of our programs are developed for educators by educators–whether you are a graduate student or a veteran teacher, and the workshops and courses are designed to meet you where you are in your place-based education journey. Gain practical skills through our on-demand webinars, join us for a virtual or in-person workshop, or take a deeper dive into place-based education with our multi-week virtual courses! 

Workshops

We pursue an authentic educational approach grounded in the idea that children are competent, rich in potential, and capable of being the protagonists of their own learning. The multi-age preschool classroom focuses on the interests of the students, with teachers facilitating and guiding the process. Parents are viewed as partners, taking an active role in their children’s education through Parent Nights or volunteering in the classroom.
