With USEA, your school or district will get access to all kinds of advantages that ultimately benefit your students, including recruiting tools, professional development discounts and opportunities, and registration discounts for our annual UTeach STEM Educators Conference.
The teachers I get from the UTeach program have this innate leadership quality about them when they come in—this confidence.
Partnering with the UTeach program has had huge benefits. First and foremost, I get the best of the best coming out.
