New Teacher Induction Program

The New Teacher Induction Program for Secondary Mathematics supports middle and high school teachers new to mathematics education.  First and second year mathematics teachers are invited to participate.  Experienced teachers who will be teaching mathematics for the first time are also invited to apply.

Participants attend monthly Saturday sessions throughout the school year. These sessions provide a format to share ideas, materials, and concerns, deepen mathematical knowledge, model good teaching, and promote collegiality.

Each participant is assigned a coach.  These coaches are all former middle or high school teachers.  Coaches meet with teachers several times per semester to help plan lessons, observe, collaborate, and discuss concerns including classroom management, best practices, motivation, maximizing classroom participation, time on task, assessment techniques and more.  The coaches co-facilitate the monthly Saturday sessions.

Participants also receive support in mentoring their students in order to build relationships with students, parents, the school, and the broader community. Research shows that these relationships help teachers feel connected to their school community and help retain them in the classroom. 

The Saturday seminar dates for the 2018-2019 school year are:

  • August 11, 2018
  • September 8, 2018
  • October 20, 2018
  • November 17, 2018
  • December 8, 2017
  • January 26, 2019  MEAD Conference (7:30 AM - 2:30 PM)
  • February 9, 2019
  • March 9, 2019
  • April 13, 2019
  • May 4, 2019 (Graduation)

These seminars will meet 8:30 AM -12:30 PM unless otherwise noted or notified. 

Preference is given to teachers from partnering districts.  Teachers who teach math exclusively will be given priority over teachers with split assignments.  Participants earn an $800 stipend for their FULL participation.
