Teacher orientation sessions are offered during the months of August through March to provide critical information about the mechanics of the International Towne program and the classroom materials.
Teacher refreshers are delivered through a webinar and are online. It is highly encouraged for all teachers to review new International Towne materials and attend an orientation or refresher.
Teacher Orientations – New Teachers
Teachers new to the International Towne program are required to attend a Teacher Orientation. These four-hour sessions provide critical information about the mechanics of the International Towne program and classroom materials. Reserve your spot at least two weeks prior to the Orientation date.
- The four-hour orientation is provided for all teachers even those that have previously taught the International Towne curriculum. If you are a new teacher and unable to attend an orientation please contact Evan Borg, Senior Towne Director at email@example.com or 303-320-3238.
- For your convenience, Teacher Orientations have been scheduled on weekdays and Saturdays. All Saturday orientations will be held remotely, live via zoom. A Zoom link will be sent out 1 day prior to each session. Bring your whole team and use the day as a planning session!
- All in-person sessions are conducted at Young Americans Center for Financial Education, 3550 East First Avenue, Denver, CO. Young Americans is located on the southwest corner of First Avenue and Monroe, four blocks west of Colorado Boulevard. Please park in the parking garage attached to the building (entrance on Monroe).
