Last year we engaged in a yearlong partnership with the San Mateo County Office of Education (SMCOE) Beginning Teacher Support and Assessment (BTSA) program. This new video provides an overview of that partnership and how new teacher mentors (“support providers”) were able to sharpen the focus on equity in their work with new teachers, and how it led to some powerful results in the classroom. The video features National Equity Project staff Zaretta Hammond and Jessica Gammell along with SMCOE program directors, new teacher mentors, and new teachers themselves in their own voices.
It’s a great representation of how we work with educators and others to foster effective equity conversations that lead to action, as well as improving relationships among adults and students.
