Bay Area Teacher Training Institute

Bay Area Teacher Training Institute The Bay Area Teacher Training Institute (BATTI) is a two-year elementary school combined masters and credential program in partnership with University of the Pacific, Stockton.
(2)

BATTI has two programs--a multiple subject teacher training credential, and an Educational Leadership and Administrative Services credential. We help our teacher credential students find work as paid, full-time resident (assistant) teachers in one of 25 independent, charter, or public schools in the Bay Area while taking university credential classes two evenings a week. Strong mentoring, learning by doing, and extensive public and independent school experience are hallmarks of our program. In our Educational Leadership program, our aspiring principals, department heads, and teacher-leaders commit themselves to a two-year school change project, which serves as the basis of their Master's paper. Our sequence of courses inspire our aspiring leaders to look at their own leadership style, what good school management and leadership requires, and the role of design thinking in transformative school change.

I highly recommend Heartland by Sarah Smarsh, a memoir about her upbringing on farms and in small cities in Kansas. As they did for Tara Westover of Educated, schools and great teachers brought Sarah out of her limited world and gave her a different idea of how she could live her life.
Sarah says this about teachers:
Looking back, I see that public school teachers are not just educators but civic soldiers on the frontlines of democracy.
Yes, they are!

Sign Up Form for OEA Solidarity Efforts: Adopt-a-Striking Oakland School and Picket Partners

Allie Grill (BATTI Cohort 14 and Emerson Elementary 4th/5th grade teacher) and other fellow BATTI grads in Oakland are preparing to go on strike in the next few weeks. Take a look below at ways you can support them:

One way that organizations and educators from other districts can give support is by adopting a school. This google form will give you more information and will allow you to sign up if you choose. This is a way that organizations can support solidarity schools and picket lines. (https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfKf1TMqmirWj_UZgc457IvJrw36EIUrOWydzAxYRz5Mk4S0g/viewform).

The two main fundraisers for the strike can be found here:

https://www.gofundme.com/striking-oakland-teachers
(this is a Members assistance fund, for teachers only)

https://donorbox.org/breadfored
(this is specifically to raise money to feed students and teachers)

Are you an Oakland Education Association member that wants your school to get support during the strike? Are you a community organization or group in Oakland that wants to support the potential Oakland Teacher's Strike? Are you a school worker outside of Oakland that wants to support the potential O...

We mourn the death of our favorite poet, Mary Oliver. These words tell us to get out there and get involved, to get our hands into it.
“I don't want you just to sit down at the table.
I don't want you just to eat, and be content.
I want you to walk out into the fields
where the water is shining, and the rice has risen.
I want you to stand there, far from the white tablecloth.
I want you to fill your hands with the mud, like a blessing.”

How Can Private Schools Contribute To the Public Good?

BATTI believes in the nation-wide effort of private schools joining together for a public purpose. We loved this story on KQED this morning about the inspiring Horizons program at the San Francisco Friends School. We are proud that BATTI residents and graduates have served as teachers at Horizons since the very first year!

As the new school year approaches, BATTI celebrates teachers standing up for their community in the Bay and beyond. Jahana Hayes (Connecticut Teacher of the Year, 2016) and Tony Evers (Wisconsin Superintendent) shine a light on education issues as they pursue new paths in politics.

We wish the best of luck to our BATTI students and alumni for a great new year!

Forty BATTI students are out in Summer schools now. They are assisting mentor teachers and in many cases lead teaching themselves. We thank our partners including Aim High, the Partners Program at the College Prep School, Springboard Collaborative (OUSD), and the Argonne School. In a win-win situation, BATTI students practice their chops and find their voice, while stemming summer learning loss with a diverse group of students.

Our first ever STEAM night was a great success! Cohort 16 students cut, mixed, designed, measured, computed, drew, theorized, and reflected. They came away with great ideas for integrating art into math and science in their future classrooms. Workshop leaders Judy Gilson, Debby Roosevelt, Kate Philpott, Aaron Moorhead, and Ned Diamond led the five engaging stations. Thanks to SF Day for hosting this dynamic class!
