The University of Arizona, Tucson Values Teachers and Champions for Change
In celebration of National Teacher Appreciation Week, we invite you to participate in a day-long celebration at the University of Arizona of all K-12 teachers on Saturday, April 28, 2012, from 10 AM – 4 PM.
The University is throwing open its doors (free admission for teachers and three family members) to its science centers, galleries and museums. We would like you to be part of this free-fest exploration and celebration for all K-12 teachers of the art, culture, engineering, literature, math, science, technology, and wonder that thrives at the University.,
How to participate: An Educational Expo will be located in and around Flandrau and the Arizona State Museum. We are offering free exhibit tables for all UA colleges, departments and programs that support K-12 education. Come out and share with the teachers and community the array of programs at the UA designed to support and enhance our area classrooms. Free, 6-foot tables are available on a first-come, first served basis, so let us know quickly!
Each year we hope to feature specific activities offered at the UA in the resource guide we give teachers. This year we are highlighting programs/activities for secondary students and teachers, as well as summer camps. Please mark any of such program you offer on the form below.
Teacher Day at the UA is an event sponsored by Tucson Values Teachers and Champions for Change, in collaboration with the UA Collaborative for Community Outreach.

Crowd and media: We are planning on the attendance of at least 3000 teachers, their families and the community. Outreach will include a media campaign and spreading the word through a wide range of educational and business organizations.
