All teachers who are new to teaching (Years 0 - 3). If you are a veteran (4 or more years of teaching), then you have every privilege of an induction teacher, (you may attend all Best Practices Workshops free of charge) but you are not required to attend.
All new induction teachers (0-3 years) in Muscogee County need to attend 5 Best Practices Workshops during the first year of work. Most of them are offered in the classrooms of some of our best teachers. You will gain from listening to what they are teaching as well as how their rooms are set up. Induction teachers also need to attend the Professional Learning Course, Managing the Classroom Effectively, during the first 3 years of employment in Muscogee County. This class is offered for Elementary, Middle and High School teachers several times during the year.
The system mentors are here to help you in any way! Our offices are the second floor of the Public Education Center, 2960 Macon Road, Columbus, GA 31906. You may also contact us by phone, FAX, or email. FAX - 706-748-2091
