This year's applications have closed. Check back in January 2016 to apply to TISS.
TISS is a transformative two-year professional development program that provides teachers with best practices in science pedagogy, adult-level content knowledge, and school site support to enhance teachers' and students' understanding of topics ranging from energy to food systems to water issues.
In each year of the program, teachers participate in a two-week summer session and over 25 hours of school-year professional development. By graduation, each TISS teacher receives 150 hours of professional development including coaching, workshops, and school-team collaboration.
