BCP Kicks of 2014 Summer Training Institute for New Teachers

This morning BCP Director of Academic Affairs Jon McGill kicked off BCP's 2014 Summer Training Institute for new and returning teachers. Twenty-five teachers from City Springs Elementary/Middle School, Hampstead Hill Academy, and Wolfe Street Academy will participate in the week-long training, which focuses on classroom management. Jon introduced the BCP staff and BCP President Laura Doherty gave a presentation about the BCP Schools.

Most educators agree that classroom management is one of the biggest challenges facing new teachers. BCP Schools use CHAMPS, a program of Safe & Civil Schools that helps teachers to design (or fine tune) a proactive and positive classroom management plan that will overtly teach students how to behave responsibly.

Training will be provided by BCP Academic Coaches Brenda Kahn and Marvelyn Johnson and BCP Director of Student Support Services Jeff Krick.

BCP's Summer Training Institute is part of BCP's comprehensive Professional Development (PD) program, which includes PD Conferences, in-class coaching, and the Novice Teacher Think Tank. For more information about PD at BCP, please contact Larry Schugam at 410-675-7000 x17 or
