Project Manager
Liberty Station, San Diego
Hello all! My name is Siria Salas, I am a Project Manager with The Energy Coalition (TEC) we are a nonprofit operating statewide. TEC helps create an abundant and healthy world by inspiring others to become energy architects of our sustainable future. Working through our three core service areas – smart energy solutions, engagement and education, and energy policy leadership – we collectively achieve valuable environmental savings that benefit everyone. The Education and Training Department, which I am a part of, focuses on creating standards-based and STEM-focused education for educators in both traditional and non-traditional classroom settings. Partnering closely with various state and local entities, TEC establishes a pipeline for growth and development within the workforce and career readiness fields. Students are encouraged to pursue STEM fields and develop an inquisitive lens to view their world.

Schoology is the platform we use internally to communicate with staff and externally with our education clients. We find it to be user-friendly and a great conduit for educator communication and learning. I am excited to be joining the NEXT conference and learning some new tips and tricks! I am also very happy to take time and discuss all the wonderful program offerings we have for both traditional and non-traditional educators in TK-12!
