A Successful Induction into the Teaching Profession
Cochran, Lori; Reese, Susan
Techniques: Connecting Education and Careers (J3), v82 n6 p25-27 Sep 2007
For the new career and technical education (CTE) teacher, a teacher induction program and peer mentoring can make the first year a much more positive experience. In this article, the authors describe the Missouri Center for Career Education's (MCCE) teacher support systems intended to help new teachers succeed. These include the New Teacher Institute (NTI) and a two-year induction program that includes mentoring for the new teacher. NTI helps mostly individuals who are coming to the teaching profession from business and industry--and do not have a BS degree in teacher education--to become better prepared to teach in the classroom. Moreover, the Missouri Career Education Mentoring Program pairs experienced teachers with new teachers. The mentor and protege work together throughout the school year. While NTI puts new teachers from various areas of CTE together, the mentoring program pairs those in the same content areas.
