To be successful in the 21st century, students need to learn key skills—such as critical thinking, problem solving, and communication—and meet academic goals. Teachers need access to high-quality professional learning experiences that help them keep students engaged while they impart key skills and teach state standards to mastery.
We partner with CalRecycle’s Office of Education and the Environment to make the Teacher Ambassador Program possible. The program enlists master teachers using the EEI Curriculum to lead workshops introducing content, pedagogy, and best practices to teachers who are interested in using the Curriculum.
We partner with the San Mateo County Office of Education to offer the San Mateo Environmental Learning Collaborative, which provides area K–8 teachers with a unique opportunity to participate in professional learning focused on teaching the Next Generation Science Standards using project-based learning and the local environment.
