SFUSD Teachers and Students Present Environmental Solutions
On Friday, April 21, SFUSD Environmental Solutionary Teacher Fellows and their students presented their students’ climate action research projects at a special event at the Randall Museum. The “Solutionary Pioneers” event was organized and led by the City of San Francisco Department of the Environment in collaboration with SFUSD Science Team in Curriculum and Instruction and San Francisco Recreation and Parks in recognition of Climate Action Month. The Solutionary Fellows are teachers who work in a Professional Learning Community with a SFUSD Science Content Specialist coach to learn and implement a climate justice project with students. The Climate Justice Solutionary Fellowship is offered in partnership with the San Mateo County Office of Education and provides 20+ K-12 SFUSD teachers a year-long paid leadership opportunity for professional learning, coaching to support students taking action for change. To learn more about SFUSD’s climate action in Science, see here and the Science Team website.
Teachers and their classes from Edwin and Anita Lee Newcomer School, Dianne Feinstein Elementary, McCoppin Elementary, and San Francisco Community K-8 presented their projects. Other classes in SFUSD and members of the general public were able to view these presentations and all attendees were able to partake in learning, networking, museum tours, and outdoor activities such as a bird viewing by Golden Gate Audubon Society.
Students had the opportunity to visit exhibits at the Randall Museum during the event.
The speakers at the start of the event included Marcus Wojtkowiak, the new Director for the Randall Museum; Sarah Ching-Ting Wan, Vice President of the San Francisco Environment Board; Tyrone Jue, new Acting Director of the San Francisco Department for the Environment; Esther Tang, Senior Environmental Education Strategist; and Renée Marcy, Supervisor for Science in SFUSD.
