Who We Are

Through the VES Collaborative for Excellence in Teaching and Learning, we are committed to advancing the knowledge and skills of faculty across grades K – 12 so they may deliver the teaching and learning excellence in the classroom. Collaborative in nature, the program brings teachers together with the experts in meaningful conversations and interactive workshops that center on sharing innovative practices, building your toolkit and learning how to apply newly acquired skills in the classroom.
