Practice


Tony Mullen, Connecticut and National Teacher of the Year 2009

I believe the best way to help the teaching profession is to support and encourage new teachers. I work part-time at a local college as the “Director of Teacher Leadership Programs” and use this position to teach new teachers best practices that work in the classroom. I help to organize professional development opportunities that enhance instructional strategies proven to be historically successful  and not just the latest “Teaching Fad.”

Working directly with new teachers is personally rewarding and, more importantly, extremely beneficial to students. This is how I practice the art of teaching with new colleagues.
