Teacher Development

Great Beginnings Session Dates:

Session 1: July 20-21, 2020
Session 2: July 22-23, 2020

 

The goal of the Professional Learning Department is to develop, empower and retain teachers and leaders so that our students experience excellent teaching and learning every day. Our work is unique in that we create opportunities to develop expertise in beginning teachers while also building capacity in teacher leaders through robust induction and coaching programs of study.

Great Beginnings is the welcome to and introduction of the OCPS’ way of work to beginning teachers. This is the first experience for new teachers in continuous professional improvement that will last throughout their careers. Research shows that “new teachers who participate in a comprehensive induction program stay in the profession longer and have greater success in terms of job satisfaction and student achievement” (Harris, 2015). The focus for our beginning teacher professional development is to support beginning teachers in instructional design and lesson planning, the learning environment and instructional delivery and facilitation.

We believe that with comprehensive coach and mentor professional development plus significant time spent with teachers in intensive, instructionally-focused support, we will have a positive impact on student learning.
