New York State Teacher Centers were formed in 1984 through a grant from the New York State Legislature. Teacher Centers are the largest professional learning communities in the state, with more than 125 centers located throughout the state, working with 675 public school districts and nearly 1000 non-public and charter schools. Teacher Centers are:

  • operated locally, with regional and statewide network support.
  • governed by policy boards composed of 51% teachers as well as representation from administrators, school board members, parents, higher education and business professionals.
  • driven by local educator needs, including implementation support for NYS and federal education initiatives such as: APPR, CCSS and Data-driven instruction.
  • dedicated to high quality, job-embedded and student-focused professional learning experiences

The mission of our teacher center is to involve area teachers, support staff, parents, and community members in educational development programs supporting the Common Core Learning Standards.  These programs evolve from the needs of the school districts in our service area, and focus on quality professional development for educators across our consortium. 

Our Program Offerings

The GSTTC offices provide places where teachers can use equipment to laminate classroom materials, to cut letters and shapes for bulletin boards, to make and laminate posters, to make labels, and to bind student booklets. The offices also house a large collection of resource books and materials appealing to a wide variety of disciplines and levels. 
The GSTTC is governed by a Policy Board consisting of elected representatives from the teacher bargaining units of member districts as well as representatives from administration, business, higher education, community and parent groups. The Policy Board meets regularly to assess the needs of their clients and to plan programs intended to meet these requests. New State initiatives continually challenge the Board to develop innovative in-service programs that will enhance the delivery of education to the children in our component schools. 

The GSTTC encourages input and welcomes comments, suggestions, criticism and participation! 
Feel free to contact us with your concerns!
