Supporting Our Graduates in Their Beginning Years of Teaching
To help recent Lesley graduate and undergraduate education alumni as they navigate the first few years of their teaching careers, the Graduate School of Education has in place a support system called the New Teacher Community (NTC). Supported by a grant from Medical Information Technology (Meditech), NTC offers professional development, mentoring, funding of enrichment grants, and interactive small group sessions as support for novice teachers during the often challenging first years, helping them stay and flourish in the profession.
The New Teacher Community meets four times a year for workshops and events, and hosts an ongoing beginning teacher support group. We welcome participation from other faculty and alumni, and are always looking for experienced alumni who are interested in mentoring newer teachers.
If you would like to be added to our mailing list, attend a meeting, and/or serve as a mentor, please contact Andi Edson, NTC coordinator.
