Riverview Teachers Explore Workplaces as Part of Grant

Staff at the zoo
Our teachers attended professional development at the Pittsburgh Zoo, UPMC WISER Simulation Lab, and the Carnegie Museum of Natural History as part of a grant for Educators to explore workplace opportunities and bring the experience back to the classroom. 

Each visit was designed to help teachers create meaningful lessons that address the career and technology standards across the grades they teach. The experiences included interviews with zookeepers, scientists, doctors, and technology professionals.  These 24 elementary, Jr. High, and High school teachers will reconvene in August for professional development and lesson planning on career exploration in their classrooms.


Thank you, teachers, for your dedication to your craft and the future learning of our students!
