New Teacher Supports

I got a job?! Now What?!


This six-session professional learning series will address the joys and challenges that are unique to new arts teachers in their first or second years in the classroom. Participants will explore how building student relationships and tapping into intrinsic motivation lead to strong classroom management, while addressing culturally responsive education in the arts classroom.


This series provides new arts teachers with the necessary pedagogical building blocks to support diverse learners, to celebrate student artistic voice, and to develop their own reflective practice. Offered by the Office of Arts and Special Projects, this dynamic series will be facilitated by the Borough Arts Directors, arts cultural partners, team members from NYC Men Teach, and the Office of Teacher Recruitment and Quality.


Sessions will take place on October 17, November 28, December 13, January 24, February 14, and March 28 from 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm.
