Recruiting and retaining high-quality teachers has never been more important than it is right now. But new teachers continue to leave the profession at an alarming rate. To stem the tide, author, nationally recognized speaker, professor and veteran K-12 educator John Spencer and Trevor Muir recently launched the New Teacher Academy.
The interactive, multi-disciplined program includes a series of (7) live, interactive sessions and accompanying instructional videos for teachers on critical topics, delivered virtually. Unlike traditional professional development, the New Teacher Academy pairs self-paced asynchronous learning with personal mentorship, and peer collaboration to help new teachers build confidence, develop key skills and a support network on the way to a lasting and successful career in education.
