• FFSD New Teacher Induction and Mentoring Program

  • The FFSD New Teacher Induction Program consists of eight meetings as well as monthly involvement with a district-assigned mentor.  These meetings provide the opportunity for first and second-year teachers to dive into the six domains of teaching as defined by the Missouri Teaching Development System: Community Builder, Classroom Manager, Instructional Designer, Facilitator of Thinking and Learning, Reflective Learner, and Professional.

    As part of your certification requirements to upgrade to a PCII (after year 4), you must have completed a Beginning Teacher Assistance Program (BTAP) provided by a university or teacher association.  Normally, completion of this requirement is at your own expense.  However, participation in the FFSD New Teacher Program program counts as completion of the BTAP requirement.
