Let’s Succeed Together
About Our Efforts
Consulting with Purpose
Beginning last year, NGRESA began examining induction practices throughout our district and we continue this work to create more continuity in our RESA district.
Why is this work so important?
Our Commitment to New Educators
We firmly believe that the majority of successful educators have been positively influenced by a mentor teacher in their school building. With approximately 44% of public school teachers leaving the classroom within the first five years, we must do our part to support and retain them from day one.
As a professional Educational Consultant , I believe in maintaining a positive mindset, creating partnerships with a purpose, and always striving for significant outcomes. Contact us today to see how you can get involved with our induction efforts at NGRESA

Steps to Guide the Development and Implementation of a District Induction Program
The Path to Success
Step 1 & 2: Self-Assessment & Develop
Will help districts gauge current levels of support and assess needs to provide a more targeted induction program.
Step 2 & 3: Implement & Reflect
Will assist districts in the implementation process once their induction support program is further developed. Will also stress the importance of stopping to reflect on progress periodically.
Step 5 & 6: Revise and Continuously Monitor
At times we realize that changes must be made with most educational practices. The revising process is part of the educational process. So as we implement and continually monitor, we must revise processes and programs from time to time.
We have a choice. We can simply defend what we have . . . or create what they (teachers and mentors) need."
A high rate of teacher turnover hampers student achievement, hurts staff morale, and impedes a school's ability to move forward.
In the fall of 2015 the Georgia PSC reported that 44% of public school teachers in the state leave within the first five years of teaching.
