WORLD CLASS SUPPORT TO NEW TEACHERS
Edgewood ISD has High Expectations for New Teachers
New teachers to Edgewood ISD with less than three years of teaching experience are assigned a qualified mentor at the campus level.
Mentors and new teachers meet once a week to discuss and reflect on student achievement and on finding solutions to the challenges that new teachers face.
Mentors and New Teachers attend a Texas Beginning Educator Support System (TxBESS) training once in the fall and again in the spring.
Mentors receive strategies on coaching and collegial conversations.
New teacher support meetings in the area of classroom management are offered four times a year.
A celebration is held at the end of the year for New Teacher and Mentors.
