Teacher Institute@PAM brings together educators in thought provoking dialogue to help build connection and understanding by leveraging the power of art. With an emphasis on Ethnic Studies, this professional development program gives K-12 teachers curricular resources that can be directly applied in the classroom. Teachers attending the event enjoy a keynote presentation from a renowned educator, several hands-on workshops,refreshments, and more. Partner museums and organizations help enhance the program by providing more resources and helping make connections to other cultures and subject areas.
