Summer Core Sustainability Teacher Workshops, June and July 2013

Over three days from June 18th to June 20th, our new cohort of Sustainable Schools Fellows assisted with facilitation of the third annual summer core sustainability teacher workshops. The first day of the workshop session was located at the Compadre High School north campus within the Tempe Union High School District (TUHSD). The first day’s agenda included a wide range of speakers including Dan O’Neil and Kelly Saunders from the Walton Sustainability Solutions Initiative and Alison Smith of Chevron Energy Solutions demoed an energy lesson activity with the group. The second two days of focused sustainability project planning work was hosted at ASU’s SkySong facility.  We followed up after a month’s time with the final SkySong workshop on July 29th. During this morning work session, our Fellow placement strategy for the 2013-2014 cohort year was announced and we heard from the teaching teams and their assigned Fellows on exciting strategies and community partnership concepts for sustainability projects.  Everyone left the workshop with great energy, a growing sense of camaraderie and formative project plans for the new academic year.
