Professional Development & Consulting

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.

At Our Campus

We offer a wide array of professional development opportunities designed for teachers and administrators in public and independent schools. Summer workshops include opportunities to explore place-based learning, gain leadership skills, learn more about teaching current topics including climate change and work with well-known national and international speakers.

At Your School

We partner with schools to provide consulting to faculty and staff in your school. We offer one day, two-day, four-day and custom place-based trainings to help you bring place-based education to your students and community. An introductory one-hour place-based education webinar is also available to schools who would like to learn the basics.
