High teacher turnover is a reality in the education field. How do we train and support our new teachers in a way that ensures they will be here 5 years from now? How do we create effective teachers no matter their years of experience? First, novice teachers need to be aware of the common needs and pressures they will face in their first year. Participants will be asked to generate their specific questions and concerns and we will share the resources necessary to answer those questions. This workshop helps set the tone that building a support system is critical to success. Communication techniques will be explored, in order to foster strong relationships with their teacher mentor and other staff in their school. Finally, we will begin the process of developing a reflective practice. Resources and templates will be shared for immediate use in the classroom.
