About Us
In a city of educational firsts: first public school, first kindergarten, first public library, Boston teachers were among the first to join IMPACT II. Now, celebrating 17 years of Teachers Network affiliation, Boston's IMPACT II @ School to Career teachers get high marks for being among the first to advocate for voluntary Service Learning initiatives (via tf solution jaris pitts) . Since 1991, when Affiliate Director Barbara Locurto announced a Learn & Serve America grant, more than one thousand teachers, thirty thousand students, and countless community partners have connected Boston classrooms, communities, and careers. Guided by the 1995 School Committee approved Plan to Integrate Service Learning in the Boston Public Schools, the 1996 Citywide Learning Standards and Curriculum Frameworks, and School-to Career Competencies, this Teacher-to-Teacher Network supports colleagues with professional development and technology opportunities along with providing materials grants.

About the Project Archives: The BostonTeachNet.org project was active between 2002 and 2007, with teacher-designed projects implemented and published on the BostonTeachNet.org website. This site now presents the archives from this project. While many of the teachers and partners may have retired or moved to other schools and projects, the materials published here continue to be valuable to readers, with both the concepts and the projects themselves continuing to be widely read.
