Supporting First-Year Teachers - Start Here

About Vicki

Vicki Nelson, M. Ed., Elementary Instruction Resource Coach. This is my 19th year in education with an emphasis in early childhood settings. Nearing the end of my first year as a coach, I look forward to the upcoming year with enthusiasm. I enjoy collaborating with other educators and participating in professional development opportunities.



Supporting First Year Teachers - Start Here

Supporting first year teachers in the current educational state of teacher turnover/recruitment means that instructional coaches provide multiple levels of support starting with the very basics of organization and management. We often support inductees who have a wide spectrum of experiences in classrooms, from full collegiate field experiences to alternative certification with no field experience. Join me as I discuss my journey as a first year mentor supporting first-year teachers in elementary schools. We will explore how to support ALL first year teachers: building relationships, establishing rhythms of contact, using/developing tools for observation and conversation, staying organized and how to know you're making a difference.
