Join us as we get to know Bertha Vazquez, director of CFI’s TIES program, bringing accessible tools to enable educators across the country to provide a scientifically sound evolution curriculum to their students. We will talk about the work of the teacher-run TIES program, as well as how evolution education goes beyond the classroom.

She has been the Miami-Dade County Public Schools Science Teacher of the year three times in her career. Bertha has been the director of The Teacher Institute for Evolutionary Science since 2015.
