EASTCONN provides regional and in-district professional learning support to districts implementing the recently revised Teacher Education and Mentoring (TEAM) program. The new TEAM Collaborative provides support for beginning teachers and mentors, along with District and School Leaders. This model enables districts to continue using the online TEAM workspaces to meet statutory requirements, and facilitates support for Beginning Teachers.


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 the standards 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.
