TIN: Teacher Induction Network

 

 

The Teacher Induction Network (TIN) is an online induction program for beginning secondary STEM teachers. TIN is structured to help beginning teachers not only survive their first two years in the classroom but also advance their professional growth towards implementing reform-based science and mathematics classroom practices. In particular, TIN is designed to provide support for teachers who have completed a high-quality teacher preparation program, serving as a bridge to professional practice and building upon knowledge and practices from their pre-service program.
