Teacher, Eduleaders, Advocates, and Scholars

What is TEAS?

The Teachers, EduLeaders, Advocates, and Scholars (TEAS) speaker series is designed to inform your future teaching practices and offer paid professional development opportunities to our Humboldt students. Facilitated by Cal Poly Humboldt’s School of Education, each session topic digs into a best or promising practice related to TK-12 Teaching.

Who is TEAS for?

The TEAS speaker series is open to anyone interested in the topics. The TEAS Stipend is only offered to current Cal Poly Humboldt Students.

These programs are funded by Cal Poly Humboldt's DHSI: Education project and the College of Professional Studies.
