TEAM

(Teacher Education and Mentoring Program)

Overview

In October 2009, Connecticut General Statute, Section 10-145o was passed and called for the establishment of “a teacher education and mentoring (TEAM) program that includes guided teacher support and coaching and the completion of instructional modules” for beginning teachers (http://portal.ct.gov/SDE/TEAM).

The TEAM Program is a two-year induction program for new teachers that includes mentorship and professional development support that new educators need to be successful. TEAM is a professional growth model that incorporates the CT Standards for Professional Learning and provides beginning teachers with multiple opportunities to reflect on their practice, analyze student data and outcomes, and identify areas for growth and improvement that drives their individual professional learning (http://portal.ct.gov/SDE/TEAM).
