Connecticut Sea Grant is accepting applications for four Long Island Sound Mentor Teachers (LISMT) for the LISMT program in Connecticut. Pairs of teachers from each of the following grade-level bands are encouraged to apply: K-8 and 9-12.
Each grade-level specific pair will work together to plan and execute a one day professional development session for their peers. Workshops will take place in Connecticut. There is funding for each pair to provide an outdoor component as part of the session. Each teacher will receive a stipend ($40.00/hour for 35 hours = $1,400 stipend per teacher).
LISMT positions are open to current Connecticut K-12 teachers.
The Long Island Sound Mentor Teacher (LISMT) program is sponsored by Connecticut Sea Grant and funded by the US EPA Long Island Sound Study. Program goals are to promote the use of Long Island Sound educational resources and to promote the interdisciplinary use of the Long Island Sound watershed and its resources in K-12 classrooms.
