Masterminds are a 21st-century professional learning community that have the potential to revolutionize teacher development, efficacy, and retention. They connect new teachers to teachers and districts across the world, and respond to what teachers need help with when it’s most relevant.
Rather than the typical approach of top-down development, new teacher masterminds empower new teachers to speak up, ask questions, network, and – most of all — support each other from the bottom up.
The result? More confident teachers, higher teacher morale, stronger teacher efficacy, lower teacher attrition, and raised student scores. When teachers are supported, everybody wins.
