EASTCONN provides regional and in-district professional learning support to districts implementing Connecticut's Teacher Education and Mentoring (TEAM) Program. TEAM is a state-wide program that provides support for beginning teachers and mentors. In addition to training and technical assistance for mentors, beginning teachers, administrators and TEAM Coordinating Committees members, our staff can assist your district in the development of a comprehensive induction system and provide coaching and resources tailored to meet your unique needs.


Benefits: With our support, you can develop a comprehensive induction system that helps novice teachers develop a common understanding of the teaching standards and their ability to increase student learning by implementing them in their classrooms. Experienced teachers develop mentoring skills as consultants, collaborators and coaches and apply those skills to improve teaching and learning in classrooms. Administrators use teacher induction as a cornerstone for school improvement. School districts create systemic induction structures and supports that promote teacher and student growth.
