Educators Making a Difference

The impact of early and elementary teachers on attitudes that will shape and preserve our world is without question. An EERE faculty initiative is seeking to support environmental sustainability in our personal and professional lives, as well as to model responsible choices for our students as future teachers.  This is happening through conservation and recycling efforts within the department and classrooms, as well as through course content that supports teaching and learning about the critical topics of environmental education, conservation, recycling, and sustainabilty.
