New Teacher Mentoring

Our New Teacher Mentoring Program provides first and second year teachers professional development as they move from a two-year initial license to the five-year professional license.  Through our program, teachers will have the opportunity to connect, collaborate, and grow professionally with others facing the same issues and obstacles.

We’ve designed this program to support your professional growth based on needs. There are many aspects of teaching which we have divided into four domains. Review the elements in each domain and consider which topics you will need significant help with by filling out our Needs Assessment Form linked below.

Understanding the New Teacher Program

Every participant must attend a Kickoff event.  During this meeting, we discuss the state mentoring requirements, resources, and additional programming for the year.

Boot Camp is an opportunity for teachers to focus on classroom management during the upcoming school year.  We will help teachers plan daily/weekly routines, special procedures, non-negotiables, discipline, policies and relationship restoration.

*New Teachers will be required to participate in one of the following Professional Development Series
