UTeach Programs Observe UTeach Week
This year, UTeach marks 20 years of STEM teacher preparation at The University of Texas at Austin.

Participating programs, using the #uteachweek hashtag, shared their UTeach Week events on social media, which we have compiled in this story.
We look forward to making UTeach Week an annual celebration of STEM education and UTeach alumni in classrooms across the country!
