Fewer than five years in the classroom

Affinity New Teacher header1

The New Teacher affinity group's multifaceted goals support new teachers (fewer than five years in the classroom) by fostering community, sharing knowledge, and strengthening teaching skills through collaboration and inclusivity. We aim to enhance instructional strategies and classroom management skills, and to link new teachers through common purposes and interests. We strive to create a pathway for novice teachers to experience socialization with their peers, fostering a sense of community and camaraderie. We empower educators to excel in their roles and make a lasting impact on their students' lives.

This group will meet on the following dates, once a month from January - June 2024.
