Clifford the Big Red Dog at Arizona PBS Kids Day

About Our Education Team

Arizona PBS’ Education Team has shared the resources behind lovable PBS KIDS characters and programs since 1983.  We are comprised of Master’s level educators who have taught in Arizona classrooms.

Some members of the team serve as the administrative home for logistics and operations.  Others are based regionally throughout the state to share, implement and connect Arizona PBS services with children, families and educators. Our grant-funded activities focus on birth-to-five centers, PreK-12 classrooms, institutes of higher education, non-profit organizations and other community partners.  Bilingual English and Spanish resources and outreach is available.
