teacher is a valuable human resource. The Michigan Federation of
Teachers & School Related Personnel (MFT&SRP)
recognizes induction for beginning teachers as an essential building
block of teacher quality. Graduation from a teacher education program
cannot be considered the end of professional preparation in the skills
and experience necessary to meet the demands and challenges of teaching.
Beginning teachers must have further preparation if we want them
to succeed. The MFT&SRP encourages beginning and mentor teachers
to use the valuable tools and resources provided on the ASSIST site
as a means for continual improvement in teaching practice.
