SuperCyclist Teacher Trainings Gaining Momentum

As Published - BikeTexas Update ENewsletter

This week, staff traveled to Abilene, Fort Worth, and Wichita Falls to conduct teacher trainings. These trainings are part of our BikeTexas Safe Routes to School Program. In three days, about 80 elementary school teachers were trained in our Texas SuperCyclist Curriculum. In 2004, TBC trained about 100 teachers; we’re well beyond that mark this year. Last week, we trained professors from UT Austin as part of our Texas SuperCollege Program. These college professors then instruct student educators, developing the next generation of bicycle safety educators. Since October 2004, 450 student teachers have learned this curriculum and will soon be implementing this instruction in their own classrooms. Bicycle safety education in Texas is attracting more attention every season.
