Brittany Crouch, a fourth-grade science and math teacher at East Cheatham Elementary School, has been selected as a facilitator for the Summer Science Standards Training for the Tennessee Department of Education.

Crouch will be attending facilitator training June 4-6 and will be facilitating fourth-grade teachers at Rossview High School from June 18-22. There are 11 training sites around the state, and the training sessions will be organized by grade level.

The training will focus on the three components of the new standards: Science and Engineering Practices, Disciplinary Core Ideas and Crosscutting Concepts, which will be implemented in the 2018-2019 school year.

All trainings will include face-to-face components as well as virtual materials to support differentiation and ongoing collaboration and learning. 

This is Crouch’s fifth year teaching and her second year in Cheatham County and at ECES.  She taught in Clarksville-Montgomery County at Liberty Elementary School for three years before joining the ECES staff.

She is also a member of the first Tennessee Rural STEM Collaborative, which is designed for rural educators to share promising practices in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education, seek solutions to local education challenges and develop capacity to promote lasting change within their own communities.
