CTE New Teacher Foundational Learning

To fulfill the goal of providing ongoing mentoring activities and support for beginning CTE teachers, the Texas Education Agency has begun the CTE New Teacher Mentor Program. As part of this initiative, TEA produced a series of Foundational Learning Sessions to explore topics that are relevant to new CTE teachers, such as lesson planning, knowledge of students, classroom management, differentiation, and building community and business relationships.

In addition, three Foundational Learning Sessions were developed for CTE administrators. These sessions provide context and guidance for administrators to support beginning CTE teachers, establish a supportive CTE environment, and build business and industry partnerships.

The links to access the teacher and administrator sessions can be found below.
