Green Teacher Webinar "Changing Energy Behaviors in Schools and Communities" with Karen Reagor
Wednesday, September 26, 2012 from 7:30 PM to 8:30 PM (EDT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Energy costs are an increasing burden on schools. By implementing energy smart behaviors, districts can manage their energy consumption and redirect the savings to other needs. The Blueprint for School Energy Teams, developed by the Kentucky NEED Project, provides a seven step approach aligned to the ENERGY STAR® Guidelines for Energy Management. It is written to help schools and/or districts develop and implement their own energy management plan.
Getting the entire school to embrace an energy saving plan, requires a shift in culture. One of the most effective methods of achieving this change is through student action. This presentation will walk attendees through the seven-step process of implementing a school energy policy and forming student energy teams.
Karen Reagor currently serves as the Southeast Regional Coordinator for the National Energy Education (NEED) Project in the United States and is the State Director for the Kentucky program. She began her career as a classroom teacher in East Tennessee and has been an active member of the Tennessee EE Association and the Kentucky Association for EE, serving as that organizations first executive director. In 1995 she began to facilitate NEED’s professional development workshops for teachers and leadership development opportunities for students, both in Kentucky and beyond. Karen’s passion is helping students (and teachers) recognize the many connections between energy and the environment. She has been a regular presenter at state and national conferences, including NSTA and NAAEE.
