Street Safety Explorers After School Program!
Walk SF and Safe Routes to School is now offering a new after school program about street safety. SF Street Safety Explorers is a fun, free curriculum that introduces 3rd-5th grade students to the importance of street design and pedestrian safety, while building analytical and critical thinking skills.
In the program, students learn to analyze traffic safety problems on the street near their school and identify street redesign solutions that will help address those challenges. Students also learn how to turn their ideas into action by creating advocacy projects directed toward local leaders and the surrounding community.
If you would like to schedule a Street Safety Explorers presentation or learn more, please email Greg Zeppa at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit http://walksf.org/take-action/street-safety-explorers/

Teacher Residency Information Session
You’re invited to come learn about the NYU Steinhardt Teacher Residency on Wednesday, September 12! This is the third year that SFUSD has partnered with NYU Steinhardt to help prepare new teachers using an innovative residency model. Immersed in the classroom in one of our SFUSD partner schools for a full academic year, you will gradually take on more responsibility, providing you an opportunity to connect learning theory with practice and build confidence in your teaching.
By leveraging a technology-enhanced learning model you will be paid to work full-time in a partner school and while completing online courses taught in the evenings by world-renowned NYU faculty. Every week you will engage in deep discussion in a supportive learning community with content experts and fellow resident interns during live video meetings.
Information Session Details
You will get an in-depth overview of the Steinhardt Teacher Residency with topics ranging from eligibility to affordability and you will get a chance to hear from both SFUSD district personnel as well as NYU faculty. There will also be time to ask any questions that you may have about the program. Feel free to forward this invitation along to any colleagues, friends, and family members that may be interested in attending. Any questions prior to the event can be sent to Kevon O’Rear at firstname.lastname@example.org.
