Fair for Education and Summer Institute - Free Resources and Professional Development for Educators
We have teachers and counselors who are doing nothing short of brilliant, and we want the community to see this, recognize it and celebrate it.
Communities in the U.S. with the highest standards of living can be identified in a number of ways, but one of the common threads is the cultural value that is placed on education.
The FAIR for Education aims to promote the positive influence of education in our community, celebrate learning as a life-long endeavor, and establish education as a ‘cultural pillar’ and central figure to the social identity of Tucson and Pima County.
The FAIR will feature free educational resources for teachers and “Lighthouse Projects” - exemplary projects by master teachers around Southern Arizona that integrate Common Core Standards. These are to be projects implemented by cooperative efforts between higher education and public schools (or private) or between industry and schools. They are innovative and will serve as a model for other educators.
This year the FAIR invites the public to come and celebrate education in our community by presenting a fun, family-pleasing array of educational opportunities for every age and interest.
The Summer Institute offers a week's worth of educator professional development in Phase I and Phase II Common Core Standards, Science, Technology, Counseling and Mental Health, and Early Childhood.
