New Teachers' Support Academy - Fall 2021 Dates in Edinburg & Laredo

New Teachers' Support Academy
Meeting the Unique Needs of the New Teacher

The first few years for a new teacher are crucial! Building a sustained system of new teacher supports minimizes teacher turnover and develops an educator talent pool that intentionally ensures students learn from a series of effective teachers. New teachers will experience exceptional support through a series of five professional learning sessions and enhanced by face-to-face or online and print resources.

Critical areas of support include:

* Effective Classroom Environment: managing time, space, and materials
* Addressing student behavior and working with parents
* Instructional design and delivery
* Learning and assessment for ALL students
* Professionalism and Ethics

Participants will have an opportunity to network with fellow cadre members and receive feedback from Region One ESC specialists.
