About Teacher Education and Mentoring
To ensure that it develops effective and innovative teachers, CREC Magnet Schools is committed to supporting new teachers and their mentors. Teachers involved in the state’s TEAM program, as well as their mentors, will find support through district orientations, professional learning opportunities, and team-building events like Dine & Discuss. Through this scaffolding, CREC Magnet Schools will provide new teachers a foundation upon which they will build a long and successful career at CREC.
In addition, the TEAM Coordinating Committee (TCC) will meet twice yearly. The TCC is responsible for developing a three-year plan for supporting new teachers and recruiting new mentors and reviewers for TEAM.
