Kendra M. Castelow 20 COLLABORATION Collaboration is the most effective way for teachers to learn. Professional development is most effective and teachers learn more in sustained teacher networks and study groups than with individual mentors. http://teachers.net/wong/APR07/ TEL Program Houston County Kendra M. Castelow

21 COLLABORATION Gen Y teachers want to be involved in a collaborative way. Induction programs provide that connection, because they are structured around a learning community where new and veteran teachers treat each other with respect and all contributions are valued. http://teachers.net/wong/APR07/ TEL Program Houston County Kendra M.

WHAT IS CULTURAL PROFICIENCY? Terrell and Lindsey describe it as a worldview that carries explicit values, language, and standards for effective personal interactions and professional practices (2009). TEL Program Houston County Kendra M. Castelow 26 WHAT IS

CULTURAL PROFICIENCY? For an educator to be culturally proficient, transparent personal reflection is required. In turn, the culturally proficient educator has a viable chance to examine the student body and take strategically planned steps to close the academic gaps that exist among their learners (Terrell & Lindsey, 2009).
