Novice Teachers


Cleveland Regional Novice Teacher Institute

Cleveland Public Schools will be hosting the Regional Novice Teacher Institute in the summer of 2019. We invite all area school districts to send teachers within their first two years of teaching to attend a two week intensive experience.

Here is a draft of the agenda and the one-pager.

If you are in the Cleveland area and want to commit a group of teachers to the Cleveland Regional Novice Teacher Institute, please fill out this form.

TLI's Flagship Program

Given the number of emergency certified teachers in our state, and the upcoming void left as our most experienced teachers retire, TLI provides professional development to novice teachers. Specifically, we will ground our training in best practices to expedite the growth that all new teachers must make in order to be effective leaders in their classrooms. We will ensure that all teachers understand the theory behind and are able to implement strategies that work to drive student achievement in their classrooms.

‍The overall approach to training and development is centered on a practice-based approach. The “Competence-Supportive Coaching Model” was developed as part of Dr. Lein’s doctoral research and has been tested and empirically supported to improve teacher competence and performance. This approach has been utilized by Collegiate Hall and is the basis for other coaching resources such as “Get Better Faster” by Paul Bambrick-Santoyo. These “mastery experiences” allow for teachers to experience quick wins in small instructional practices and build confidence before entering the classroom. These methods continue to be utilized throughout each coaching event.
