The first few years of teaching in an independent school can be challenging. The SAIS Institute for New Teachers provides guidance, support, and the opportunity to practice planning and instructional skills with a small peer group led by an experienced independent school educator. Immediate, constructive feedback on demo lessons allows attendees to practice in a supportive setting.

Armed with practical hands-on strategies and information unique to the culture and setting of an independent school, new teachers leave this program empowered to create and facilitate inspired learning experiences, partner with parents, and find their place in the school community.

Early Career Teacher Mentorship Program
Early-career educators are juggling so many new things – classroom management, curriculum, the culture of a new school, parents, and more. The Early Career Teacher Mentorship Program supports new teachers by providing year-long virtual support from experienced independent school educators. The program will give teachers the space to learn core skills, gain confidence, and improve their practice while building relationships with other early-career educators.
