Teacher Advisory Council
The Museum’s Teacher Advisory Council is made up of educators who serve two-year staggered terms. If you are interested in the council or have additional questions, please contact Mike Murawski, Director of Education and Public Programs.
The Teacher Advisory Council (TAC) engages with the Museum to support meaningful interactions between the Museum and our Teacher and Student Communities. TAC promotes learning and interpretation through engagement, collaboration, and access across learning levels.
