new teacher academy
Over the past six years, over 700 beginning K-12 teachers from public and private schools across the state have participated in this professional development experience.
Teachers rave about the opportunity to learn from experienced classroom practitioners, connect with other beginning teachers, and to collect a range of tools for immediate use in September. Read what teachers had to say about the experience:
"The New Teacher Academy was phenomenal. I learned so much about building a community and classroom management. I cannot wait for school to start so I can apply my newly acquired knowledge!"
“Overall, the conference exceeded my expectations especially for how reasonably priced it was. Thank you for understanding the finances of a beginning teacher!”
"I had a great time learning new skills and meeting new people. I greatly benefited from this academy. I have tons of great ideas and good classroom resources. I also have more confidence to learn from my mistakes, ask questions, and to be open to new ideas and strategies. I would love to come again next year!"
“Keep up the great work, this was extremely helpful and I've been recommending it to colleagues and principals I meet!”
“Thanks for everything!! Everyone was really nice and passionate about what they were sharing with new teachers. And the booklets we received were really helpful.” “I really liked that there were some sessions targeted more for teachers with just very little experience because it gave me a place to connect with others who were in a similar position as me going back into the school year.”
