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 who decide to join the Elementary STEAM Leaders cohort will attend a virtual institute in early fall, 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.
