Connecting Schools and Communities

Teton Science Schools serves current and aspiring educators through professional development for practicing educators and the first year of a graduate program. We work with pre-service, in-service, and informal educators through a year-long graduate program, school and district consulting and professional development workshops. The programs are a combination of educational theory, practical applications and mentorship to support the development of educators who can implement place-based approaches in a variety of settings. Programs combine place-based education with innovative leadership strategies for educational reform.

"The Teton Science Schools experience gave teachers not only knowledge and skills, but more importantly, the confidence to adopt place-based learning as a fundamental approach to their teaching practice and a growing aspect of our overall campus culture."

The Value of Place-Based Education Professional Development

How to Engage with Us

Virtual Workshops & Consulting

The Teacher Learning Center (TLC) at Teton Science Schools has implemented a variety of professional development experiences for public and charter schools, private schools, non-profit education organizations and higher education institutions.   The TSS educational framework of a place-based educational approach, intentional culture, and community leadership is used by the TLC to help guide these experiences. The framework is neutral to benchmarks and standards and thus can be implemented in any educational setting. Central to the framework is the concept of understanding place as a tool to engage students and integrate curriculum.
