Governor Strickland has proposed a four year residency program for mentoring of new teachers into the profession of teaching.
While I'm sure this won't happen overnight, I'm sure that change will come. There is already talk of no PRAXIS assessments next year.
So, tell me, how can we best support teachers in their first year? What should definitely be a part of our mentoring program for entry year teachers? What should we not be spending time on?
I look forward to hearing what others think. I look forward to redesigning what we do. Change isn't all bad.
