Teacher Support Programs

Dr. Flores addressing new teachers

 

Evergreen School District believes that effective teachers are the key to helping students become life-long learners, collaborators, and critical thinkers. Our teacher support programs help teachers new to the Evergreen School District to engage in a collaborative mentoring model of support.

It is important to remember that no matter how skilled the educator, or the physician or the athlete, learning a profession is a never-ending process… even champions have coaches!
