    Induction Teacher Recognition Initiative - The One to Watch Award


    Teachers play a critical role in shaping the future of our students and the community. Induction teachers (0-3 yrs of teaching experience) face numerous challenges as they navigate the complexities of the classroom while beginning their journey with enthusiasm and a passion to make a difference.


    Teacher Development and Human Resources Recruitment and Retention are excited about our Induction Teacher Recognition Initiative- The One to Watch Award. This monthly recognition will be awarded to induction teachers that have demonstrated effective teaching and classroom management practices, established a sense of community in their classroom, created dynamic learning experiences and showed high levels of professionalism.


    We are pleased to announce October’s The Ones to Watch Recipients
