Coaching Support


Resource team members work with CEEMS teachers both during the summer and throughout the school year.  The resource team consists of both recently retired educators and recently retired engineers or scientists.  They provide professional development on challenge-based learning, engineering design principles, and other related educational topics, as well as support participants in the development and implementation of curricular units. 

Each CEEMS teacher is assigned to two or three resource team members.  One resource team member serves as the primary coach for that teacher and others provide additional support. 

Over the summer, resource team members develop and lead professional development for teachers and attend coaching sessions where teachers can receive individualized help during the unit development process.  During the school year, resource team members observe teachers during unit implementation (not for evaluation purposes), support teachers as they prepare to lead professional development workshops for other teachers, and help brainstorm ideas for future CEEMS units.
