New teacher center Phases of First-Year Teaching
Thank you so much for your interest in our Phases of First-Year Teaching.
A teacher’s first year is difficult, there’s no denying it. With new students, new schools, and new districts come entirely new classroom dynamics—some of which teachers might never have encountered before. New students bring new challenges, new opportunities, and new teaching methods that must be implemented or even developed in the moment. This, then, leaves new teachers the task of not only understand their own social and emotional competencies but also their students’ and how all of it impacts classroom instruction.
New Teacher Center (NTC) is a national non-profit organization dedicated to improving student learning by accelerating the effectiveness of teachers and school leaders. Founded by teachers in 1998, NTC works in conjunction with school districts, state policymakers and educators across the country to provide all educators with the support and resources necessary to succeed from their first day to their last. NTC’s programs are built upon evidence-based principles for developing a talented and effective educator workforce, and are proven to accelerate teacher effectiveness, reduce teacher churn and improve student achievement.
