BEST program offers support for new teachers

One year ago, Hannah King of Beacon Hill Elementary in the Kelso School District was new to the profession and having a hard time managing her classroom. Everything was a challenge in those first weeks. She wasn’t sure teaching was the right career for her. Hannah got help though. To help new teachers succeed, ESD 112 coordinates comprehensive support for 1st and 2nd year teachers through BEST, the Beginning Educator Support Team program.  ESD 112 supports districts to keep and grow their newest teachers. Thanks to BEST, today, Hannah and her class are flourishing.
