What is the Program Design? 

Teacher Academy is a replication of the very successful Leadership Academy Satellite Program, which has been fundamental in providing professional growth for school leaders.  The Academy focus is centered on student engagement, instructional strategies, and reflection on practice that align with the Missouri State Teacher Standards. Teacher Academy is designed to provide participants with an intellectually stimulating opportunity to learn new teaching strategies and collaborate with other highly committed teachers in the region. 

Participation requires monthly release days for regional meetings to allow teachers time to discuss educational issues, deepen content knowledge, and network with other highly committed educators from the area. Tuition, transportation, food and substitutes will be the responsibility of the school or individual.
