The Interdependence Institute works closely with the Scarsdale Teachers Institute to offer and highlight courses that emphasize global connections. The Scarsdale Teachers Institute offers continuous professional education to the faculty of the Scarsdale and Edgemont schools, teachers in other school districts, and community residents.
Scarsdale teachers began this program with the belief that the best teachers are alert, open-minded people who continue to learn and to translate their insights into appropriate experiences for their students.
Offering a variety of professional experiences in response to the needs of those working with children, the Institute contributes to an atmosphere of intellectual inquiry that stimulates the staff to continue learning. This professional interaction benefits the students and the staff of the Scarsdale and Edgemont school districts.
Supported by the Scarsdale Teachers Association, the Edgemont Teachers Association, and the Scarsdale and Edgemont Boards of Education, the Institute reaffirms the principles of professional autonomy and professional collaboration inherent in the highest quality of professional development.
