Our GoalS

TREC will build professional development capacity, increase teacher retention, and develop teacher leaders. Specifically, TREC will facilitate teacher learning and leadership efforts at the local/regional level by:

  1. Raising the visibility of and providing greater access to high-quality professional development activities offered in the greater Tucson area.
  2. Supporting early childhood through 12th grade educators (classroom teachers, counselors, specialists, etc.) in finding the best matches for their learning needs.
  3. Supporting connections and community-building for educators across the region.
  4. Creating new professional learning and leadership opportunities wherever these needs are unmet.
trec rationale

We believe that teachers are professionals and should have more oppurtunities to advance their careers.

Our rationale is built on acknowledging that no single entity can do it all. This is why we have chosen to bring in a number of partners that will invite innovative ideas and collaborations across stakeholders to go beyond individual district’s or school’s professional learning efforts.
