My colleagues and I at the Center for Science Education (http://cse.edc.org/) are looking for expert science teachers who are committed to integrating 21st century skills into their instruction.
I am contacting you to see if you would consider collaborating with us on a new and exciting project- Designing Professional Development to Infuse Science Instruction with 21st Century Skills. Your perspective and experience will provide valuable input to shape the design and delivery of the PD. Participation will be appropriately rewarded.
We are primarily looking for high-school biology teachers in the New-England area, but we would be happy to collaborate with teachers from other states or science disciplines.
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org If you are interested in learning more about the project, our expectations from collaborators and the compensation involved.
All the best,
Hi Peter. I'm accused of thinking of "big picture" and sometimes, accused of being so far in front of everyone else that they cannot see me. Thus, I've created a variety of visuals to help people understand my thinking and the actions that I have put to work over the past 16 years to help build an infrastructure that would support non profits in many locations helping inner city kids go through school and into careers.
I encourage you to take a look and lend a hand if you see how these ideas could be applied in other cities than Chicago where the issues of poverty and size compound the problems of education.
