SKACD takes great pride in the quality of our new teacher mentoring program. We welcome any licensed teacher to apply for a career with our agency. Even if you have no formal training or experience working with students with exceptionalities, we believe that we can provide you with an opportunity to grow as an educator.
This is largely due to our exceptional special education instructional coaching department. We are one of only a very small handful of school districts who have developed a team of instructional coaches specifically for special education services. Our instructional coaches are experts in helping special education teachers understand best practices in curriculum and instruction related to special education.
All first year teachers at SKACD spend the year being coached by this team, both in large group and individual mentoring. Second year teachers also continue to receive support. Instuctional coaching support is also available to our related services personnel as well.
