This is a one-time training you must complete in order for your school to participate in WELS New Teacher Induction (NTI). Once you’ve completed it, we’ll have a record of your participation and you will be all set to assist in the recommendation of mentors for the support new teachers from then on.
After working your way through this knowledge base (wiki), then send me an email that includes answers to the following questions:
How closely do you work with the mentor for the new teacher in your building? What are the mentor criteria?
Do you have any concerns about how you will meet the responsibilities of WELS New Teacher Induction?
Does your building presently have a culture that is supportive of new teachers? If so, what are the characteristics that make it so? If not, what can you as the building leader do to make it a better place for new teachers to work?
What are your personal plans for how you will support the new teachers in your building?
What was the most helpful part of this training for you? (And we'll take suggestions on how to make it better, too!)
Please complete the activities according to your schedule, then answer the questions and send them to me in an email before the start of the new school year to firstname.lastname@example.org.
