The Stories Behind the Numbers

“ Not only are our students transient, our teachers are transient.” – Heidi Foley, Lead mentor

“We [Osceola County] had not established a new teacher induction program. And I know that I personally had heard about new teacher induction programs in different areas, but we did not have one….everybody was assigned a mentor, but it wasn’t an established program. Every school kind of figured out how to do things, to keep their teachers in the profession. But now our partnership with NTC actually made it to where all of a sudden this became an established program.”

“They’ll say they wouldn’t have made it through the year had it not been for that support person, just to be there, to talk with them, to plan with them, to help guide them through that whole process of teaching and all that it entails for the whole year.”
