TVHS offers intensive (one-day) and immersive (two-day) teacher residency programs. We are excited to share lessons learned from a decade of utilizing project- and problem-based learning and integrated curriculum design.
We are pleased to offer teacher coaching for teams or individuals who are actively engaging in this process. BOCES-aidable pricing is available for all services.
