Message from Executive Director Josephine Salvador, posted August 30, 2021:
Dear NYS Master Teachers,
As we prepare for the 21-22 program year, we plan to return to Master Teacher in-person meetings. In reality, the transition back to in-person NYSMTP-PD may take a few weeks or a few months, and it may vary from campus to campus. We will continue to monitor applicable guidelines, and communicate updates via the Launch Pad and Regional Director emails. I share the following to help Master Teachers plan:
We learned from Master Teacher feedback that there was great value in statewide NYSMTP-PD. We will continue to support cross-regional professional learning opportunities. On-line NYSMTP professional learning opportunities will be limited in number as we return to in-person meetings.
NYSMTP-PD will either be in-person or virtual. In other words, there will not be an option to participate on-line if the activity is in-person.
For the 21-22 program year, please plan to attend more PD in-person activities as the year progresses. In-person participation supports the cohort community and collaboration.

“Discover the Arctic’s bizarre STEM, from flying icebergs… to “dead water”… to permanently frozen ground… to dancing lights in the night sky.”
“Take in the strange things done in the midnight sun.”
“While you may never teach an Arctic course, you will find much for you here. You will find yourself repeatedly referring to the interesting phenomena of the cryosphere in your classroom.”
