Course Description

The TEA New Teacher Program was created through a collaboration among regional teacher education programs and organizations.  The purpose is to create a safe and engaging space for early career educators to explore the challenges and opportunities they are encountering in their classrooms. 

Each monthly evening workshop will be led by an expert in the field, with tips and strategies as well as guided conversations aimed at sharing practice and building a sustainable, professional community of new educators.  Topics will include culturally responsive teaching, building a culture of inquiry, effective questioning, self-care, and much more!  Click here for additional details.  

One Act 48 credit will be provided for each hour-long workshop attended.
