New Teacher Induction Program

The New Teacher Induction Program for Secondary Mathematics aims to support 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.   

The Saturday seminar dates for the 2017-2018 school year are-

  •  August 12, 2017
  •  September 9, 2017
  •  October 21, 2017
  •  November 18, 2017
  •  December 9, 2016
  •  January 20, 2018  MEAD Conference (7:30 AM - 1:30 PM)
  •  February 10, 2018
  •  March 10, 2018
  •  April 7, 2018

These seminars will run 8:30 AM -12:30 PM unless otherwise noted or notified. In addition to the Saturday sessions. each participant is assigned to a coach from the University of Arizona.  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 monthly Saturday sessions.

Preference is given to teachers from partnering districts.  Teachers who teach math exclusively will be given priority over teachers with split assignments. 

We will begin accepting applications for the 2017-2018 school year in May.
