Beginning Teachers

We know that beginning teachers work tirelessly in the first year of the teaching profession and that the learning curve is steep. This is an essential year in which they employ skill, dedication and determination beyond measure!

Access Resources and Samples

The challenges teachers new to the profession face are complex. We know that as a district, it may be difficult to provide the support to bridge the gap that your beginning teachers need. Let us help design a plan that can provide the support and mentorship needed for our newest colleagues.

I wanted to reach out and express my true appreciation for all the support Cheryl Gascoyne has given me since August. Cheryl has provided me with opportunities to expand my skill set and offer the best version of my professional self to each group of students I encounter. Cheryl has built literacy confidence within me that I have not had before. Cheryl have impacted me and my career in ways I cannot explain. I will continue to share Cheryl's expertise with colleagues and hope that in the future our paths will cross again and we get the chance to collaborate further.
