Our Solutions

We accelerate the effectiveness of educators at all levels

Jewish New Teacher Project’s solutions build effective, quality teachers and school leaders with the goal of enhancing student learning and success. We do this by providing new teachers, veteran teacher mentors, and early-career school leaders with evidence-based skills and the supports necessary to create optimal learning environments. We partner with schools to identify the solutions that can meet their unique needs.

TEACHER INDUCTION PROGRAM DETAILS
New teachers have unique needs as they enter the classroom. Ensuring that they have high-quality support allows them to deliver impactful student learning and builds their confidence to stay longer in the profession. JNTP’s Teacher Induction program prepares mentors to support new teachers through their first years of teaching and accelerate their growth through 1:1, ongoing, job-embedded feedback and formative assessments.

Administrator Support Program

Jewish New Teacher Project offers early-career administrators the opportunity for professional reflection, self-assessment, and growth at the start of a new role. These leaders learn to coach for instructional results, build strong learning environments, distribute leadership, and engage school communities in continuous improvement. JNTP’s research-based program integrates learner-focused and learner-led experiences that emphasize mastery through authentic practices. This not only empowers, inspires, and innovates school and teacher leaders, but transforms schools and creates optimal learning environments so that all students can succeed.
