This initiative works to assist teacher-candidates in the S.T.A.R. program. The academy holds frequent meetings to discuss and work through issues and challenges experienced as new teachers.

The meetings are safe spaces for teacher-candidates to discuss openly and honestly about their daily experiences. As well, they collaborate with veteran teachers and other new teachers on solutions to problems.

Furthermore, the academy is a continuous process of acquiring new knowledge and skills that relate to the teaching profession, understanding job responsibilities, or learning their work environment.

Teacher-candidates exchange information and helpful tips to grow in their career, while a veteran educator is present to assist in ensuring that teacher-candidates reach helpful and sustainable resolutions.
