YES Prep Public Schools welcomed around 45 new teachers on July 22 for the New to Blue Summer Academy. New to Blue, a program developed for teachers who have previous experience teaching, provides an introduction to YES Prep’s culture and commitment to feedback. New to Blue teachers attend sessions on strengths-based leadership, developing self-awareness, transforming Houston, curriculum, and assessment.
New to Blue is critical to providing teachers with a foundation, with resources, and with a community.
