Launch into Teaching offers a multi-tiered program of support and learning for teachers in all career phases, beginning teacher mentors, instructional coaches, and administrators. On this website, you will find useful resources designed to provide you with the specific type of support you need.
Accessing our website automatically provides you a Basic Membership to our program. As you navigate our website, you will find basic support in the form of practical tools and strategies targeted for use by teachers, beginning teacher mentors, instructional coaches, principals and districts. Effectively implementing these tools will immediately impact student learning in your school.
We provide on-site multi-year programs of support and learning for those districts who want to transform educational practices and raise student achievement. Guided by a clear Vision of Effective Teaching, skilled Launch into Teaching coaches work with districts to develop instructional coaching practices that impact instruction. With this package you receive all the benefits of the Basic Membership, with the addition of:
