With standardized testing, emerging technologies, reduced budgets, and increased accountability, there is a sense of urgency for new teachers to develop the skills necessary to survive and thrive in the classroom; New Teacher Help will present a series of monthly webinars to help novice teachers quickly learn these skills. Webinar topics will include dealing with difficult parents, making a good first impression, classroom management tips, and more.
The online community also provides tools to help new teachers collaborate, get to know each other, and create an ongoing support network.
