One hundred percent of K-12 teachers said they are motivated to improve their teaching as a result of participating in Teacher Quest, the TRDA’s signature professional development program. This dynamic result is one of four key findings from a recent independent evaluation of Teacher Quest.
And the quest continues for Florida teachers! Helios Education Foundation recently awarded the TRDA with a $314,000 grant to extend its highly successful Teacher Quest program to the Tampa Bay area for the next three years. The extension has the potential of positively impacting thousands of students in the region.
A lot can happen in one year. But, think what can be accomplished in 11 years!
This summer, the TRDA's signature educator professional development program - Teacher Quest - celebrated its 11th anniversary of giving Florida teachers a broader experience in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields through full-time summer employment opportunities.
MELBOURNE, Fla. – Beginning this month, Florida’s Technological Research and Development Authority (TRDA) is recruiting businesses in the state of Florida to participate in Teacher Quest 2009. Sponsored by TRDA, Teacher Quest is a statewide professional development program that connects teachers with summer employment opportunities. Teachers take their work experience back to the classroom to enrich student awareness of careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Nearly 1,500 teachers from across the state have participated in Teacher Quest.
Technology advances impact every aspect of our lives - and the classroom environment is no exception. New and exciting technologies, including handheld chalkboards and projector systems, enable teachers to incorporate technology training into everyday lessons.
