The absence of KTIP has created a greater need for school districts and teacher education programs to work together to support the growth of new teachers in Kentucky. The theme of the conference is mentoring. We are encouraging school districts or school representatives and any teacher education programs supporting beginning teachers to share your strategies. If you have mentoring programs or partnerships you would share, consider applying for the panel discussion as well as a concurrent session. The panel will give an overview of their work. Conference attendees who want to learn more can then attend individual sessions during the conference day.
In addition to mentoring partnerships, we would like people to share their work related to technology, high-leverage practices, and cultural diversity and equity.
