The Supervisor leads the Teacher Services team which manages a collection of resources and professional development programs for teachers and informal educators in support of the Aquarium’s mission. S/he supervises 2-3 Teacher Services staff members, and works in collaboration with School and Community Programs colleagues to provide high quality service and resources for school and community organizations.
The Education Department facilitates programs and activities to help participants progress towards seeing themselves as ocean stewards who are inspired, informed and empowered to take action and to mobilize others. Through Teacher Services we facilitate practice with core science and education skills through instruction, support and modeling; programs and resources for on-going learning; programs with content about ocean science and literacy, ocean issues and solutions; increased accessibility to our resources; and teacher connections outside the classroom. We envision that teachers in our region will universally think of New England Aquarium as an institution that offers great resources, advice and support for teaching about aquatic and marine ecosystems, issues and species in ways that are relevant to the curriculum and standards teachers are working to address.
