Teachers in Louisiana and Georgia are ready to challenge students this fall

School’s out for the summer, but across the country, NMSI is busy hosting trainings for thousands of dedicated teachers who are spending their hard-earned summer vacations back in the classroom. This week, more than 300 math, science and English teachers in Louisiana and Georgia gathered in their states for rigorous Common Core aligned NMSI Teacher Training to help them prepare for the upcoming school year. Nearly 100 teachers from 6 school districts across Georgia and 250 teachers from 23 school districts across Louisiana, spent four days in teacher training to learn new rigorous and vertically aligned strategies that will engage their students in hands-on activities and challenging coursework.
 
 At NMSI, we’re inspired by teachers every day, teachers for whom teaching is more than just a job – it’s truly a zeal for learning and a commitment to helping students get college and career ready. Check out this great local coverage of the trainings and see why these teachers are so passionate about transforming their teaching this summer:
