Teachers, counselors, and principals are crucial to the success of GeoFORCE. They offer invaluable insight during the recruiting process. They help students with applications, and they help us stay in contact with the students throughout the year. Teachers are also hired by GeoFORCE as educational coaches for each of the summer field trips. In that vital role, they not only help keep our University instructors and research scientists on track, but break down lesson material so that it is understandable for the kids.
One way we say thank you is by offering two-day professional development workshops and field trips, once, sometimes twice a year. These workshops provide teachers with valuable classroom resources, and they give educators a taste of the GeoFORCE Texas program and what it has to offer.
