“When new teachers get into school settings with talented teachers, and they partner…together the school community becomes the hub of hopefulness.” In this episode, Jentre and Ed visit with Ellen Moir, founder and past Chief Executive Officer of New Teacher Center (NTC), a national organization dedicated to improving student learning by accelerating the effectiveness of new teachers, experienced teachers, and school leaders. She is recognized as a passionate advocate for our nation’s newest teachers and for the students they teach. Ellen received the 2014 Brock International Prize in Education for her work in scaling high quality teacher induction services to a national audience through the New Teacher Center. She believes the best way to ensure all students are college, career, and community ready is to provide educators at every level with the support necessary to succeed from their first day of teaching to their last. Together we discuss the importance of teacher mentoring and how we might best support and recruit teachers into the profession today. To learn more about NTC and Ellen’s legacy work, visit https://newteachercenter.org​ ​
