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.
