This interactive experience will equip new teachers with the skills and understanding to guide and support their first years in the classroom. Participants will present two brief sample lessons to a small peer group. Guided by an experienced educator, lessons will be recorded and reviewed in a small group setting. Discussion will focus on strengths and opportunities observed during the lesson. New teachers will learn best practices for lesson development, parent communication, and classroom management. They will address anticipated challenges and difficult conversations through real-life scenarios and role play.
