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.

Participants will engage around key topics including:

  • classroom practice, including classroom culture, student engagement, building relationships
  • pedagogy, including frameworks, assessment strategies, feedback, learner diversity
  • independent schools, including culture, parent relationships, campus life and responsibilities
  • personal efficacy, including professional growth, time and workflow management, sustainability and self-care
This program is hosted by Trey Education.


This virtual program will be valuable to any teachers in the first three years of teaching, and includes both asynchronous learning modules (timely topics each month) and synchronous cohort-based dialogues. Each cohort is facilitated by an experienced educator/mentor and groups are intentionally small (capped at 12 teachers).


Asynchronous modules will be offered via the SAIS learning management system (LMS).

  • Three modules in the fall (Sept, Oct, Nov)
  • Three in the spring (Jan, March, May)

Cohorts will meet via Zoom for a total of eight sessions:

  • Fall 2022: Aug 10 (optional welcome session), Sept 14, Oct 12, Nov 9
  • SPRING 2023: Jan 11, Feb 8, April 12, May 10 
  • Session time options are: 4-5 PM or 7-8 PM Eastern. Time preferences are selected during registration. 
  • Zoom links will be emailed 24 hours and 2 hours before the session start time.
