Our Mission Statement
The Western New York Teacher Center is a collaborative of educators from Erie 1 BOCES, Clarence, Lancaster and Depew Schools, University of Buffalo, and various non-public educational facilities. Our Center provides professional development courses and resources to advance innovative, high quality instruction, as well as to support the member districts' visions and respond to the needs of teachers and the educational community. Our services are available to all educators and the community across the WNY area.
