Teacher Tuesdays

Program Information

Teacher Tuesday is an educator professional development program where educators come together as a community to learn from experts in environmental and plant science, STEM and from each other. These monthly sessions will provide teachers with new ideas and strategies for their classroom while creating energy through networking.



As the 4-part series, 'Who in 'The FORT' is Making an Impact', concludes, we examine common practices and misinformation about food. Dr. Gina Jarman Hill at TCU, chairman of the Department of Nutritional Sciences, presents her program, "Seed to Plate". Through this amazing program, Dr. Hill works with TCU students, staff, children, and families to plant the seed for proper nutrition and concentrate on food sustainability!
