What a Wonderful World…

I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world

Symposium on New Teacher Support

Symposium on New Teacher Support 

April 2, 2016

Merrimack College

The Symposium for New Teacher Support is an opportunity to address one of the most pressing issues in education: how to best support and retain new teachers.

More than thirty percent of new teachers leave their jobs within the first three years, with much higher turnover in urban and under-resources schools and districts. Research is clear that new teachers require engaged mentors, high quality and ongoing professional development, and structured support to be successful. Merrimack College’s School of Education & Social Policy is thus proud to host this day-long symposium where we raise critical questions, foster thoughtful conversations, and promote impactful practices.

The symposium features prominent Keynote Speakers and a wide variety of Professional Development Workshops focused on new teacher support. We believe that such a symposium, linked to our other ongoing academic programs, can foster new teachers’ commitment to and success in the education profession in order to make a substantial difference for the youth in their classrooms and communities. Join us for this important event. Additionally, teachers have the opportunity to gain a “Certificate of Participation” towards their PDPs.

“Remember the ladies…”

“If particular care and attention is not paid to the ladies, we are determined to foment a rebellion, and will not hold ourselves bound by any laws in which we have no voice or representation.”    Abigail Adams (1744-1818) – First Lady
