The Catskill Regional Teacher Center(CRTC) is a consortium Teacher Center that is state funded to support teachers and teaching assistants in public school districts as well as private schools in the Delaware-Chenango-Madison-Otsego BOCES and the Otsego Northern Catskills region.

The current policy board is looking for members to fill positions. Please contact the CRTC to find out how you can become a member of the Policy Board.
As the director of the Teacher Center I am excited to be able to serve the entire region and assist educators with their professional development. I have been an educator in the region for over 15 years serving as a teacher and an administrator. It is my hope that I can share my experience with those teachers in need.
The Catskill Regional Teacher Center works with the following agencies and groups to benefit the teachers in the region. The collaborations assist in meeting the needs of students through the professional development of teachers. Interested in collaborating with Teacher Center, then please contact us.
In the past, the Catskill Regional Teacher Center has sponsored Learning Networks in which educators meet in common subjects areas to discuss issues. One such network is the School Psychologists' Learning Network. Anyone with an interest in this network please contact the Teacher Center.
