Why invest money and time into new teachers?

"Repeated turnover thwarts the kind of continuity needed to build sustained, trustful relationships among teachers, students, and families" (UCEA Policy Brief – January 2018).

The cost of coaching is significantly lower than the cost of hiring a new teacher, at an average of $17,872 (Morrison, 2019).

Teacher retention rates after one year were 11% higher in the group who received high-intensity coaching, compared with a control group of new teachers (New Teacher Center Study).

New teachers reported that a coach who was "external to the district inspired privacy and trust... and feedback was valued for being supportive rather than evaluative” (North Carolina New Teacher Support Program).

How can we help?

We are instructional coaches who:

  • are trained in the latest research
  • use active listening skills
  • use effective questioning skills
  • provide emotional support
  • provide problem-focused support
  • expand teachers' capacity for critical self-reflection

We build trust and relationships quickly to establish a safe space for vulnerability, partnership, risk-taking, and growth.

We have the time to dedicate to your new teachers, working alongside them in the classroom so new teachers can learn, implement, and reflect in the moment.
