Elementary STEAM Leaders
About the project:
Updated for 2021-22!
A cohort of approximately 30 educators will serve as Elementary STEAM Leaders over the next school year. This includes 10 2nd-year leaders and 20 new cohort members.
They will focus on professional development, networking, lesson planning, and school-based leadership during the 2021-22 school year.
Teachers will attend a 2 or 3 day virtual institute in August, plus 3-4 PLCs throughout the year. Each STEAM Leader will receive a $1200 stipend plus a $150 supply budget for their lessons.
Counties eligible: Hood River, Wasco, Sherman, Wheeler, and Gilliam.
The project will be led locally by a Gorge K-5 educator. It is a collaboration with Greater Oregon STEM (Eastern OR), Umpqua Valley STEAM Hub (Southern OR), and Portland Metro STEM Partnership.
