Induction: A Key Tool for Recruiting and Retaining Teachers

The National Association of State Boards of Education states that effective teaching is the primary factor that influences student achievement after accounting for student characteristics. New teachers typically require from three to five years to teach at a level that maximizes student growth and achievement.

The Center for Teacher Innovation (formerly RIMS-BTSA) has fully redesigned its Induction programs and developed a customized approach to helping new teachers excel. This innovative new program is designed to accommodate and support the distinctive needs and unique learning environments of Private Schools. Our program aligns with and supports the private school’s culture and mission, and its hybrid online structure promotes authentic growth with continuous learning cycles that are meaningful, resource rich and applicable to each teacher’s unique learning environment. Each teacher is paired with a carefully selected Reflective Coach who will participate in our professional learning in order to effectively guide and support the beginning teacher. New teachers who participate in induction programs benefit schools through improved teaching practices, higher student achievement and lower teacher turnover. Based on the evidence from the initial success of our program, students are benefiting in both their social/ emotional and academic learning.
