About the Session

Beginning teachers face a steep learning curve as they transition from the role of student to the role of educator. Much of the first year of teaching (or the second or third!) may feel like there is more to learn as a teacher than there is to be a teacher! This year is exceptional given the circumstances of school re-entry...

Join this cohort to ask questions that have arisen in your new role, to learn with others who are also beginning their careers, and to build your professional learning network as we explore best practices in areas such as planning expectations, assessment and reporting, parent-teacher interviews, classroom management, inclusion, collaboration, and more! Each month, take away new wisdom, tools, and/or resources and return the next month to share your experiences.

This learning opportunity is being subsidized through funding from Alberta Education.
