In Friday’s New York Times, esteemed Bank Street educators Shael Polakow-Suransky, Josh Thomas, and Karen Demoss discussed the importance of teacher training programs. In our work here at EA connecting teachers and private schools, we know how important strong teachers are, and becoming a great educator starts with a solid foundation, often learning from experienced colleagues. As mentioned in the article, many independent schools across the country have excellent teacher training residency programs for aspiring teachers at all grade levels- Convent of the Sacred Heart, New Canaan Country School, and the Penn Residency Masters in Teaching program- to name a few.
