ADIRONDACK TEACHER CENTER
Providing professional learning opportunities
for educators to enrich their teaching practices
and improve student learning and wellness.
The Adirondack Teacher Center is
We are one of 125 Teacher Centers across New York State
focused on training and supporting local educators through professional learning opportunities
in order to enrich the learning experiences of their students
Teacher Resource and Computer Training Centers were created by the New York State Legislature in 1984. The intention was to provide school districts and the teachers of the state with an opportunity to develop systematic, on-going in-service training programs. The Centers would assure the dissemination and application of educational research developments in classroom instruction, and develop new curricular materials specifically designed to meet the needs of the students served. Teacher Centers afford teachers and teaching assistants new and expanded opportunities to develop their professional skills. Centers work with schools in an uniquely collaborative way to design and offer services which teachers need and want. These services complement, rather than replace, the staff development programs offered by school districts, BOCES, and other staff development providers.
The Adirondack Teacher Center first opened its doors in 1987. We serve the educational community within a 3,000 square mile region in Franklin, Essex, and Hamilton counties. Every year, we put on numerous in-service programs designed to meet the needs of state and national initiatives, new state assessment requirements, and the demands of the classroom. We also fund a range of Professional Learning Project Supports, providing teachers with money to create curriculum projects or enhance professional development.
