Conference Presentation: Creating a Vision for Your Classroom or Center

Peter Block states that vision is, “A statement of hope for the future.” It’s essential that there is a vision for each classroom and/or center that is shared by all members of the teaching team. A vision ensures efforts towards improvement are well-planned, consistent, and sustainable.

In this session, teachers and/or directors will learn about the importance of vision setting, then consider what is important for their specific classroom or center. They will work individually and in small groups to visualize, then create a vision for how they want their classrooms and/or centers to look, sound, and feel. Each participant will leave this practical and interactive session with the beginning of a vision which will provide a roadmap for their future classroom or center. Without vision, we have lots of false starts so let’s work together to provide a strong beginning to the future!

Conference Presentation: New Teacher Induction for the 21st Century Teaching and Learning 

For the past 18 years, New Teacher Center has been afforded multiple opportunities to study and codify our teacher induction model. We have learned about the frequency duration, and types of interactions between a mentor/coach and teacher that most positively impact teacher practice and student achievement. In order for schools and districts to gain the maximum benefit from teacher induction programs, leaders must implement high quality programs that are both responsive to current educational foci and cutting edge. This session will explore how to integrate social and emotional learning in the context of rigorous College and Career Ready Standards into your existing induction program to ensure new teachers are set up for greatest success. Induction leaders and mentors/ coaches will engage in a variety of protocols to examine, analyze, and assess their local induction practices and leave with skills and strategies for program improvement.
