PreK-12 educators are invited to join SCMA’s newly reformed Teacher Advisory Group (TAG), which meets approximately five times a year to preview upcoming exhibitions, tour current exhibitions, and provide valuable feedback to SCMA educators. Meetings are scheduled on Thursdays from 4 to 6:00 pm and include dinner. Meetings are open and informal; attendees may arrive late or leave early as needed. Teachers are eligible to receive an Educator level membership after attending three meetings and may request a certificate to document professional development hours. Enjoy a professional learning community of teachers from all grade levels and subject areas who are passionate about utilizing the resources of the museum.
