Join us for a series intended for 1st and 2nd year teachers, any content area or grade level. Participating novice teachers will:

  • discuss the challenges and successes of their first years in the classroom with peers and experienced teachers
  • explore and apply strategies to improve teaching effectiveness and encourage teacher wellness
  • build a professional community that will be a source of support beyond the series

Session themes will include educator wellness, building classroom community, and more. We will be joined each month by expert guest facilitators who will provide tips and tricks aligned with the session themes. The series is interactive and participant-driven, with space provided to share challenges, muddles, and successes from your own classroom experience. Active participation is expected. Registration is for the entire 10-part series, and attendees will receive contact hours for their participation based on attendance.

Space is limited and first come first served, so register as soon as possible! We hope to see you there.
