Retired teachers reach back to teach back successful techniques used during their careers.

Beginning this school year, new teachers will have the opportunity to utilize a retired teacher as a Teach Back Coach to provide non-evaluative, confidential support and reassurance to make a smooth transition into the classroom. Teach Back Coaches and new teachers will be matched based on teacher need on a first-come, first-serve basis.

What does the role entail? The Teach Back Coach will…
•Take on a “caseload” of 1-3 teachers.
•Participate in a summer orientation session.
•Attend the Meet and Greet during New Teacher Induction on August 11.

•Meet with each teacher for at least an hour in their buildings during the clerical days, August 19 or 21.

•Schedule monthly in-person meetings with each teacher (though meetings can be more frequent).

•Keep a monthly log of visits and complete quarterly feedback surveys.
