2023-24 We Care Program for New Teachers and Clinicians: Teacher and Clinician Interest Form
Thank you for your interest in our coaching and mentorship opportunity. By filling out this short form, you are indicating your interest in participating in the We Care program and committing to work approximately two hours per week with a coach and mentor during the school year. Participating new teachers and clinicians will receive a $500 stipend and be eligible for Professional Development hours.

This program provides you with a Virtual Instructional Coach (VIC), someone with a similar job title or similar grade level and subject to yours. The VIC will focus on areas like planning, assessment, and student engagement. If you work in just one school, you will also be provided with a Building Mentor,  who will focus on areas like understanding CPS policies, learning about the culture of your school, and building relationships with colleagues.

To be eligible, you must be a first, second, or third-year teacher or clinician in the 2023-24 school year, not just a new CPS educator. We have a focus on new educators of color, but all are welcome.

We will get back to you soon with more specific details about the program. In the meantime, feel free to email  mentoringprogram@ctulocal1.org with any questions.
