New Teacher Support

The Office of Recruitment, Preparation, and Recognition (RPR) leads policy development to ensure that every student, school, and district will have access to well-trained, effective educators that meet the particular needs of their local communities. To do this, we must attract and retain excellent educators in New Jersey, ensure that they are prepared to be effective on their first day on the job, and recognize their contributions to our students and to the profession.

Please take the time to view this video, The Power and Benefits of Clinical Practice. It speaks to the importance of being a cooperating teacher as well as the impact of clinical interns.
