The Beginning Teachers Institute is designed for current elementary, middle, and high school teachers less than three years of experience and their mentors in all content-specific disciplines. Teachers will have an opportunity to participate in candid conversations with faculty from the Simmons School's Department of Teaching and Learning. The institute will offer practice advice for:

  • Actively engaging students
  • Supporting students who struggle
  • Building a foundation for cooperation in the classroom
  • Utilizing technology
  • Engaging English Language Learners
  • Promoting a mindset for achievement

We are excited to invite new teacher mentors to this year's Beginning Teachers Institute so that new and experience teachers can grow their practices together.

Registration opens Wednesday, April 1, 2015.
