Teacher Induction Program
At Brandeis, we believe that teacher learning continues throughout the professional lifespan. For this reason, we provide ongoing “induction” support for all of our alumni who teach in Greater Boston (and beyond, as resources permit). We are grateful for the generosity and foresight of Dolores Kohl and the A.V. Davis Foundation, whose support helps make this possible.
For the new teacher, induction is a bridge between being a prospective teacher and being a full-fledged professional educator (at which point you’ll add mentoring to your roster of responsibilities, we hope). As a first-year or early-career professional, you will face many challenges. Not only are you responsible for a classroom of students, but you are also negotiating the culture of your school, continuing to develop your identity as a teacher, and becoming an active member of a professional community.
All this can be both exhilarating and daunting, but you will not be alone. The Brandeis Education Program is here to help you. Whether you complete our undergraduate program, the MAT program or a teacher-education program in one of the other CETE colleges, we have an induction program to support your needs.
