Registration for 2023-2024 is happening now!


Now is a great time to partner with Jewish New Teacher Project! JNTP can help you support teaching, learning, leadership and culture in your school. Addressing these concerns has been at the heart of our innovative work since 2003. 

Our two outstanding research-based and field-tested programs, drawn from the award-winning New Teacher Center (NTC), help Jewish day schools support teachers and new administrators in their multiple roles.

Teacher Induction Program


We understand the challenge of being a new teacher and juggling student engagement, lesson planning, parent communication and academic achievement. Utilizing a proven, data-driven, peer-mentoring program, JNTP trains veteran teachers in your school to intensively mentor your beginning teachers, accelerating teachers’ effectiveness and long-term commitment to the field. 

Over two years, mentors learn JNTP’s approach, language, standards and tools to support new teachers. During this period, they meet with new teachers weekly for one-on-one, ongoing, job-embedded feedback and assessment of the effectiveness of their teaching.

Administrator Support Program

JNTP offers a two-year program to support day school administrators who are new to their roles and who have teacher supervisory responsibilities. Responsive to the culture and needs of each school, this program is fully confidential. New administrators collaborate, share experiences, and grow with a cohort of educators in similar roles through a combination of professional development workshops and one-on-one coaching. Topics covered include Culture, Leadership and Supervision.
