Title: A Whole New World of Teaching
As coaches and building leaders, we often find ourselves working with some of the most important staff members in our buildings... NEW TEACHERS! These educators are embarking on a journey where they need to feel supported, loved, and heard. With this session and a little bit of pixie dust, you’ll leave feeling ready to work with these new teachers in order to help them develop skills they need to be there for your students! Our Disney-themed session will break down three core areas to focus on as we support these new teachers. Take a note from Woody and Buzz in “You’ve Got a Friend in Me” and set up a mentor program for your new teachers! Look at “The Bare Necessities” with your new teachers as you lead them through timely monthly professional development and self-care sessions. “Go the Distance” with your motivational support and organizational skills as you keep yourself prepared to lead and guide at all times! Our new teachers are such a valuable part of our campuses, and they need all the love they can get during “A Whole New World” of teaching!
