Great Falls Teachers Collaborative

GFTC consists of teachers from the Paterson Public Schools, committed to enhancing their practice through collaborative lesson planning and team teaching. We come from a variety of teaching disciplines, but focus our studies on STEM topics.

We are currently engaged in several ongoing projects:

  •  Out of school time curriculum development and delivery for the YMCA of Paterson’s E3 University 21CCLC program.
  • Coordination and delivery of teacher training events in conjunction with the Great Falls National Park.
  • Curriculum development, teacher training and program evaluation for other out of school time programs.
  • Enhancing and deepening our STEM knowledge base to benefit our individual classrooms at our respective schools.
