Upper elementary and middle school teachers from across Virginia are invited to apply for the 2019 Summer Teacher Institute. Twenty participants will be selected to join us from July 8-11 at Jamestown Settlement living-history museum in Williamsburg, Virginia. This Institute is funded by private donors, and provided at no cost to participants. Hotel accommodations (double occupancy) and all meals are also provided.

The 2019 Institute will begin at 1:00 p.m., Monday, July 8 and end at 1:00 p.m., Thursday, July 11. Participants are actively engaged in both indoor and outdoor activities from around 8:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. each day of the Institute. A stipend and certification of professional development hours will be issued to participants upon completion of all Summer Institute and fall follow-up activities.
