The first day of school is critical for students as well as teachers. For new teachers, it can be an overwhelming and anxious experience. To help, we offer a program called the Summer Academy.
On May 31, we kicked off our 2016 Summer Academy. A course designed to prepare new teachers for their first-year in the classroom and the first day. Reviewing everything from curriculum, supplies, activities and classroom decorations, our academy is equipped with lead teachers and experts who help new teachers plan and develop their year-long agenda.
New teachers who are placed in schools in Los Angeles are given teacher assistants for the whole year. This is part of the ample support system we provide so that our teacher-candidates who work at schools can be effective and successful.
