Supporting educators. Enhancing student experiences.
Jewish New Teacher Project helps Jewish day school educators gain and maintain the skills they need so that their students can thrive.
We help day schools and yeshivahs across the entirety of the Jewish ecosystem transform teaching, leadership and culture in their schools through the mentoring and coaching of beginning teachers and new school administrators. Our outstanding job-embedded training and relationship-based support fosters and accelerates these educators’ ability to create learning environments grounded in instructional excellence.
In such environments, all learners have access to higher quality education and can succeed. The result is Jewish students who are engaged, inspired and knowledgeable, and who are prepared for active roles in their Jewish communities and beyond.
JNTP is a self-funded division of New Teacher Center, the acclaimed, award-winning national leader in educator support. NTC’s mentoring and coaching methodologies are research-based and field-tested in hundreds of public school districts nationwide. To date, NTC has supported 300,000 Pre-K-12 teachers, mentors and administrators, impacting nearly 17 million students. As part of NTC, we bring NTC’s proven approaches, innovations and best practices to the Jewish day school field.
Over 40,000 students
Building cultures of instructional excellence.
JNTP’s Teacher Induction and Administrator Support programs accelerate the effectiveness of educators and school leaders at early points in their careers. Our capacity-building approach establishes best practices early on and sets the stage for a career of instructional excellence, leading to improved learning and cohesive pedagogical cultures.
Teacher Induction Program
New teachers have unique needs as they enter the classroom. High-quality, intensive mentoring helps early career teachers quickly gain the skills they need to teach more effectively and builds their confidence so they stay in the profession longer.
JNTP trains veteran teachers within schools to provide mentorship to beginning teacher colleagues through their most challenging first years. The collaborative relationship develops new teachers’ craft and veteran (mentor) teachers gain new leadership and teaching skills that invigorate their own teaching practice.
Administrator Support Program
Administrators are key levers of change in a school. They set school culture around learning for both students and adults. JNTP provides novice administrators the opportunity for professional reflection and growth at the start of a new role.
The acquisition of practical tools and strategies empowers, inspires and innovates school and teacher leaders, transforming schools and creating learning environments in which all students can succeed.
