Webinar “3 Proven Strategies to Help Your Novice Teachers Thrive”
New teachers, career changers, paraprofessionals, and substitute teachers are teaching in record numbers. As leaders, we want to ensure that our novice teachers are effective, feel supported, and are excited to continue teaching at our schools. HOW?
In this edWebinar, EdConnective experts will provide leaders with practical strategies that can be implemented to ensure novice teachers are equipped to make an immediate and meaningful impact on student achievement this school year. After seeing the research, leaders will have a formula to:
- Maximize professional learning time invested in new teacher development
- Overcome capacity constraints for new teacher support
- Implement simple, proven strategies to help new teachers gain proficiency quickly
Research has shown repeatedly that novice teachers can perform at the level of a fifth-year teacher with the right development, and our experience has confirmed this. We regularly experience improvement in student engagement, mastery, and belonging in our work with teachers. Don’t miss this session to learn how you can apply these strategies with your own faculty this school year.
This edWebinar will be of interest to K-12 school and district leaders. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation.
