Build, Support, Sustain
NTC works with school districts and state leaders to build, support, and sustain results-oriented programs that increase the effectiveness of teachers and school leaders at all levels.
When a teacher joins a district partnered with NTC, they are inducted into a community built to furnish them with the tools and support needed to become truly effective. From day one, they benefit from the invaluable mentorship or coaching of an accomplished peer. They are guided and galvanized by leadership trained in effective supervision and the creation of thriving school cultures.
Far more quickly than the average teacher, NTC teachers become powerful educators on a long-term trajectory of professional learning. Their students benefit from research-based and classroom-tested practices that accelerate progress. Their communities grow and flourish with a renewed sense of purpose and hope for a brighter, better future.

New Teacher Center has a portfolio of school leadership solutions that supports school leaders to become strong instructional leaders and key drivers of overall teacher development, school transformation, and systems change. By developing school-based models of teacher development, we leverage the work of school leaders and their instructional leadership teams to impact broader change across the district.
We focus on positioning school leaders to provide ongoing, consistent learning opportunities for teachers in the areas of rigorous standards, social and emotional learning, and data driven instruction, working closely with instructional coaches and mentors to ensure alignment and integration.Learn More
TEACHING, EMPOWERING, LEADING & LEARNING
New Teacher Center’s TELL Initiative helps state and district leaders gather, document, and analyze educator perceptions of teaching and learning conditions in schools and districts. NTC then guides school leaders in using the results to plan improvements that include professional development for teachers and school leaders.
The Teaching and Learning Conditions (TLC) survey is an opportunity for smaller districts (25 schools or less) and district partners to gather data directly from their educators on one or more of the TELL constructs of interest to their unique environment.Learn More
