Who are we?
The NC NTSP is a leader in university-based induction support through the belief in and practice of transformative, intentional coaching to increase student achievement by improving beginning teacher effectiveness and retention.
What do our partners, teachers, and coaches say about us?
“As a beginning teacher the one-on-one support was wonderful and provided me with specific feedback. The feedback I received allowed me to implement new practices in my classroom that allowed for maximum student engagement.” – Teacher
“Beginning teachers have been more prepared for instruction and in their ability to build relationships and implement good behavior management techniques.” - District BT Coordinator
“My coach is great; she always makes herself available to me for the littlest questions I have. She always provides me with new ideas and methodology to further skills that I already possess. It is nice to have someone who teaches me as well as listens to me when I need to run something by her.” - Teacher
“Words can’t express the appreciation our school has for the NC NTSP. Our teachers have received high quality support & guidance through the service & leadership of our Coach. We value the contributions of the program as they ensure the success of new teachers to the profession. As a principal, having a non evaluative third party assist beginning teachers across a broad scope -curriculum, instruction, classroom management – truly helps nurture & build teacher capacity.”
- Principal, ECU Region
