We would like to connect with you, the educators, who have the most direct impact on students served by the UW RISE UP/GEAR UP grant. Your commitment to elevate and transform teaching so that all of our students are prepared to meet the demands of the 21st Century, is critical – and admirable.  Effective teachers and principals are career-long learners. Effective schools and districts are learning communities where teachers and principals individually and collaboratively continuously reflect on and improve practice.

We want and invite your input about how to make this section of the website more relevant to your needs. We would also like to include your ideas and successful classroom practices and STEM-related projects.

Also, be sure to visit our UW GEAR UP Facebook page where STEM curriculum, videos, the latest teaching strategies, and website links are frequently posted.
