CONTINUING PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
Deeper Instruction...Deeper Impact
Throughout the school year, continued professional development will focus on supporting and extending the foundational knowledge previously acquired through summer training. Curriculum taught during the school year is designed to align with the needs of new teachers as they progress through their first year of teaching.
CLASSROOM SUPPORT AND COACHING
Support When and Where You Need It!
RISE specialists are available for instructional coaching and support by partnering and building relationships with new teachers in order to identify problems of practice, set goals, and collect data through in-class observations. Afterward, the RISE specialists will work collaboratively with you to analyze data and determine next steps. If you would like to request support services, please click the link below.
Your Assigned Teacher Mentor
An integral piece of the induction process is the relationship between the new teacher and his/her mentor. New teachers and mentors work together to examine, analyze, and reflect on the craft of teaching. New teachers are given the opportunity to become reflective practitioners through their work with the mentor teacher. The structure of this work is a Formative Assessment System that guides the new teacher through the complex process of learning to teach. The formative assessments include activities and observations that refine the skills of the new teacher. Through a collaborative coaching process, new teachers problem solve, incorporate new ideas, and analyze their students' progress. The Formative Assessment System includes activities and observations that take place during the school year. To learn more about the mentoring program, click the button below.
