New Teacher Orientation
When you begin your teaching career, you will find yourself with many questions about how to approach things that are new to you. If you have a few years of experience, you begin to look at the “why” of what you do to determine if there is a strategy that is a better fit for your classroom. During this 6-session course, we will review topics that are important to all new teachers.
