Lake Region Teacher Center

Teacher Center Logo2012  

The Lake Region Teacher Center (LRTC) will provide area teachers with opportunities to attend in-service training sessions, enroll in college classes for credit, observe programs in other schools, and utilize programs and materials developed by other professionals and agencies. By providing these opportunities we believe educators have a better chance to develop to their full potential, and the local educational systems can be strengthened, and higher quality education can be delivered to all students.

Teacher Visitation Grant
The Lake Region Teacher Center has a grant available for teachers to observe other colleagues in the classroom. This funding is intended to pay for a substitute teacher and one day of travel expenses (in-state) in order for an instructor to leave his or her classroom for the day or part of the day to observe a master teacher in the classroom.  These dollars can be used to fulfill part of your professional development plan as you observe master teachers.

Educational resources and materials are available for member check-out through the LRTC Media Center.   Materials are located at the Educational Resource Center, 801 5th Ave SE, Devils Lake, ND 58301.  Phone: (701) 662-7690 / Fax: (701) 662-7684  Resource Center / Materials Media Specialist: Kristi Serumgard
