New MSD Teachers Cohorts 1 & 2
This is for both Cohorts!
This series of professional learning is designed for new MSD teachers to gain critical information in preparation for the first years of instruction. Initial work-sessions will include Environmental Arrangement, Scheduling and Paperwork Prep, and Visual Supports. Monthly online learning and webinar meetings will be scheduled to address further training topics such as behavior intervention, communication supports, and IEP development and progress monitoring. Coaching and technical support will be provided throughout the school year to address the individual learning goals set by the participant.
Target Audience: MSD teachers with 2 years or less of experience teaching students with moderate and severe disabilities. The Director of Special Education from each member district will submit names for this cadre.
