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 offers Teacher Induction programs that prepare mentors to support new teachers and accelerate growth through 1:1, ongoing, job-embedded feedback and formative assessments in an optimal learning environment for both educators and students.
With continuously shifting student populations and new, rigorous academic standards to implement, the role and impact of mentors is imperative to increasing educator effectiveness. JNTP provides two years of professional development including Instructional Mentoring, Coaching and Observation, and Analyzing Student Work.
The Jewish New Teacher Project offers partners a customized strategy to develop expertise at providing school leaders capacity-building support through professional learning opportunities, peer networks, and in-field coaching over a two to three year engagement. 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.
JNTP works directly with schools to assess and understand where you can make the greatest impact with your resources. We provide a variety of consulting and training options to support and guide you at any point in the year for the length of engagement that best suits your needs.
