Teachers Helping Teachers

In Springfield Public Schools (SPS) new teachers are not alone. When a new teacher joins our district, they are supported by a team of seasoned staff, mentors and coaches. The SPS Mentoring and Induction Program aims to support new teachers for their first three years and in doing so, support their nascent careers and the performance of all our schools.

The students then academically compete to demonstrate their newly acquired environmental knowledge.
