Watershed for Every Classroom

"As teachers, we can sometimes forget all that goes into learning and applying a new skill. Going through that experience ourselves can help us to better understand our students and all that they know to be able to do in order to come to new understandingsā€

Eve Dubois, WEC teacher, 2008-2009

A Watershed for Every Classroom (WEC) is a year-long professional development experience for educators in the Lake Champlain Basin (Vermont, New York and Québec), brought to you by CBEI.
