Williams College Summer Program for Teachers

Teachers from schools in Adams, Cheshire, Clarksburg, Florida, North Adams, Savoy and Williamstown are invited to attend any or all of the professional development programs offered at Williams in the summer. Workshops during the summer of 2000 covered a range of disciplines, including Computer Science, Philosophy, Science, Biology and Humanities. The courses provide credit that will help teachers meet requirements for recertification, although the courses are also open to teachers not receiving credit.
