The Mid-Hudson Teacher Center responds to the needs and interests of over 13,000 educators, along with parents and community members in Dutchess, Ulster and Orange counties. The teacher center endorses reflective practice, continuous inquiry, and collegiality. The center celebrates the talents of teachers, and encourages the sharing of those talents with others. The teacher center is a place where the educator's voice is heard and a community of learners is built!
