MTDS: BTAP A Green Cohort | January 10, 2024 - May 6, 2024 | 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM CT
17% of teachers leave the career within the first five years but research shows effective professional development is a key factor in teacher retention. As teachers enter the career, a collaborative community of learners can help them transition from their role as a student to that of teacher. This program is part of the Missouri Teacher Development System, which is an on-going system of learning for Missouri teachers.
This opportunity provides:
- networking with other new teachers and educational consultants
- just-in-time learning (critical firsts)
- awareness of the phases of a new teacher
- relationship-building skills
- on-demand learning, including videos by Mike Rutherford
