Teacher Academy Graduates

Join us for the second class of Statewide Teacher Academy Graduates on July 18-19, 2019

​The Missouri Teacher Academy Graduates program allows participants to continue to deepen knowledge gained from the Teacher Academy program. It is a natural progression to building lead teachers for your school district.

Attendees continue to acquire research-based best practices aligned to the Missouri Learning Standards and Missouri State Teacher Standards. Building the Artisan Teacher™ will be one of the focuses for the 2019-20 school year.

Mike Rutherford will be the trainer for the statewide kickoff. Tuition, travel expenses (including hotel at the statewide meetings), and substitutes will be the responsibility of the school and/or individual. 

Please register on My Learning Plan for statewide meeting in July. Regions will offer at minimum four regional meetings.

What Are the Costs?
