Programs, events, and workshops for educators of all grade levels and subjects
Explore Museum exhibitions and discover new teaching resources to take back to the classroom.
The Bullock Museum hosts professional development experiences in a variety of formats throughout the year. Evenings for Educators offer a chance for teachers to explore the Museum exhibitions in an informal environment, meet community organizations, gather classroom resources, and enjoy time with colleagues. More structured Educator Workshops allow teachers to take a deep dive into artifacts, primary sources, background knowledge, and teaching strategies on specific topics. All programs provide CPE credit, TEA approved.
We also offer the opportunity for groups of teachers to schedule workshops based on needs and interests with the Bullock Museum.
I really appreciate how you treated us like rock stars tonight! Ana L., Sanchez Elementary
