The NYSUT Tarrytown Regional Office has always supported the concept of continuing education for the members of our region. We are constantly looking for opportunities to provide you with training initiatives relevant to your profession. With that in mind, we created the Tarrytown Learning Center (TLC).
The TLC is set up to conveniently provide you with seminars that will enhance your work experience and give you the tools necessary to become the best that you can be within your profession. The seminars will be set up in conjunction with the NYSUT Education and Learning Trust (ELT). With more than 30 years’ experience, the ELT is the go-to choice for high-quality professional learning with experienced, classroom-tested instructors. The ELT offers the latest and most relevant research-based strategies and resources, taught by your colleagues — fellow teachers and school-related professionals. These are educators who have walked the walk, mentoring, facilitating and implementing the research-based methods and practices they teach. In addition, the TLC is working closely with the Lower Hudson Valley Network of Teacher Centers.
Through the TLC, we have scheduled more than 80 seminars, beginning in October and continuing through April. The seminars will take place at the NYSUT Tarrytown Regional Office, the Pirates Cove in the Pearl River School District in Rockland County and the Newburgh Free Academy in Orange County. As in the past, you will be able to use My Learning Plan. This will allow you to use the hours towards the required hours for professional development to track the seminars you attend.
These seminars are open to NYSUT members only and there is no charge to participate.
