Cultivating Teacher Leaders: Local Opportunities for Growing in STEM

Michelle Rinehart
T³™ Regional Instructor
Secondary Math Consultant, Region 18 Education Service Center

Navigating the shifts in STEM education requires a collaborative approach that leverages resources from a variety of educational partners. Local Educational Service Centers are uniquely positioned to play a key role in this vision of moving STEM learning forward by connecting educators, schools, the Texas Education Agency, business partners, and national education leaders. Explore some of the many ways that your local ESC supports educator growth and retention and systemic innovation in STEM, including specific initiatives in mathematics, science, and computer science. See what learning and leadership opportunities are available here in your region to support teachers’ continued growth as professional educators.

Effective Implementation of Technology

Pareesa Shirazi Education
Technology Consultant, Texas Instruments

Implementing technology successfully requires more than just putting technology in the hands of teachers and students. To make significant strides in teaching and learning, there is a need for a vision and ongoing support. One component of a successful technology implementation is instructional coaching. An effective instructional coach models what is possible with technology, and he/she helps teachers believe that they are capable of doing the same.

Based on her experience as an instructional coach, Ms. Shirazi will discuss what components make up a successful coaching model and how to develop rapport and trust with teachers to work collaboratively to meet the needs of students.

Resources for STEM Instruction and STAAR Preparation

Pareesa Shirazi

TI provides a variety of digital resources and content materials to support your district’s implementation of TI-Nspire™ technology or TI-84 Plus family of graphing calculators. These resources support successful STEM initiatives and help teachers to implement the TEKS and to prepare for statewide STAAR exams. Pareesa Shirazi, your local Education Technology Consultant, will provide an overview of these materials that you can take back and share with math and science educators in your district.

Texas State Budget and Funding Opportunities

David Thompson Partner
Thompson & Horton LLP

David Thompson is a founding partner of the Thompson & Horton Law Firm in Houston, Texas. He is an acknowledged school finance expert and has successfully argued school finance cases on behalf of school districts in front of state district courts in Travis County and before the Texas Supreme Court.
