New Teacher Academy

The LRC-South New Teacher Academy (NTA) provides high-quality professional learning experiences to support the professional growth of new teachers during their first years in the profession. The NTA curriculum will address research-based high leverage inclusive practices and include engaging activities that will be beneficial to all new teachers.

All first through third year teachers are encouraged to apply to this FREE professional development opportunity to explore strategies that promote the success of all learners. Membership in this Professional Learning Community (PLC) includes a three-day summer academy and monthly meetings throughout the academic year to support your professional growth. 

The 2023 summer academy will be in person at Rowan University on Tuesday, August 15th - Wednesday, August 16th; and Thursday, August 17th from 8:30 am to 3:00 pm, with a virtual orientation on Tuesday, August 8th at 6:30 pm. 

Monthly virtual PLC meetings will be held in the evening, tentatively scheduled for the second Tuesday of the month (September through June). To make the most of this valuable opportunity, participants will be required to attend the orientation, all three days of the summer academy, and the monthly PLC meetings.
