Registration for the New Teacher Institute
is now closed.

The New Teacher Institute will host a team of national experts to work directly with participants to help prepare them for new positions in your schools. The transitioning of new teachers is important at every level, but most significantly for the students they will teach. Investing in the new teacher at this pivotal point can encourage the development of essential attitudes and skills that will allow your new teachers to thrive and commit fully to your school. You have attracted the best and can now begin to support and retain them though the challenging and unfamiliar circumstances we are all facing. Now, more than ever, they need our support, and you need them to be successful at your school

Who Should Attend
Independent school educators in the first two years of their teaching experience.

Why Attend
This energizing Institute will provide new teachers with the strategies essential for a successful start to their teaching careers. The Institute will also allow participants to begin building the foundations for long and successful careers in independent schools. Sessions and content will reflect best practices and will support the development of skills in the essential understandings of teaching and learning in independent schools including:

  • Understanding Independent Schools
  • Working with Today’s Independent School Parents
  • Classroom Management: Routines and Procedures
  • Blended Learning: The New Normal
  • Communication Basics
  • Backward Curricular Design
  • Legal Basics for Educators
  • Cultural Competencies for Educators
  • Managing Student Anxiety
  • Ongoing opportunities to share, process and discuss with colleagues in similar roles

Participants will engage in both large and small groups for presentation and conversation.

Benefits to the School
School communities expect and require new teachers to be highly effective on the first day of school. Often, there is more information than can be processed effectively without overloading the new teacher. Participants will learn best practices at a manageable pace to help them succeed and fully commit to your school.

Dates & Times
To maximize the impact of the Institute, participants should make plans to participate fully in all sessions. Times are listed in central and eastern; breaks are built into the agenda.

  • The institute will be held Wednesday, July 27 - Friday, July, 29, 2022
  • Each day from 8:00 am – 3:00 pm central/9:00 am – 4:00 pm eastern

Community of Learners
We ask everyone to enter sessions as listeners, learners, and thoughtful contributors. We welcome a variety of perspectives with a focus on understanding as opposed to debating. We hope each session serves as a springboard to additional conversations and thank you for your willingness to respectfully listen and learn.  Our goal is to create and protect a trusting community where it is safe to share with each other. To that end, ISACS prohibits the recording of any portion of the webinar as well as the unapproved posting of presenter or participant comments or resources from ISACS sessions.
