ACES provides regional and in-district professional learning to districts implementing Connecticut's Teacher Education and Mentoring (TEAM) Program.

TEAM is a collaborative endeavor focused on student achievement that brings together beginning teachers and trained mentors. Mentors and beginning teachers focus on classroom practice within the context of the teacher’s own students, subject, grade level, curriculum requirements and school and district goals.

Services offered:

  • Training and technical assistance for mentors, beginning teachers, administrators, TEAM reflection paper reviewers and TEAM Coordinating Committees members.
  • Technical assistance for districts to sustain a comprehensive induction system that promotes teacher and student growth, with coaching and resources tailored to meet your specific needs.
