The Virtual Teacher Academy in Character Education (vTACE) has two fundamental purposes. The first is to inspire a personal commitment to character values as a teacher and further strengthen the noble purpose bedrock all educators share. The second is to equip teachers with character development best practices and evidence-based methods for building positive character skills in students. We've also identified and will measure a few bold goals for vTACE Academy Graduates-increasing academic success in their classrooms, decreasing student referrals, lowering teacher turnover, and increasing job satisfaction.
vTACE is designed for Elementary and Secondary Teacher Leaders in years three to five of their career, the Academy's One-Year Program will center on monthly full-day evidence-based virtual work sessions led by award winning educators, expert character education practitioners and renowned scholars.
vTACE will complement the highly successful in-person TACE Academy. The vTACE facilitation scholars will ensure that this virtual offering will be every bit as personal, collaborative and impactful as our in-person academy.
