S10 Episode 1: Supporting Arizona’s New Teachers with Michelle Doherty
It’s a new school year and a new season of 3Ps in a Pod! We’re kicking off this 10th season of the podcast by exploring opportunities and resources available to Arizona’s newest teachers.
3Ps hosts Kathleen and Danielle first talk about some of the ways that the Arizona K12 Center supports new teachers and review the events coming up in this year’s Beginning Teacher Series. They then welcome Michelle Doherty to the conversation. Doherty taught for 25 years and now teaches at Northern Arizona University and supports new teachers as an Arizona Teachers Academy mentor.
Doherty reflects with Kathleen and Danielle on her first few years as a teacher and how that informs her mentorship now. She also shares some of her own advice for beginning teachers.
New teachers can learn more Beginning Teacher Series events and new teacher mentors can find information about Mentor Institute at azk12.org/events.

*Note: In an effort to move safely forward in the ongoing pandemic, the Arizona K12 Center will not be hosting the Meet, Mingle, and Learn events mentioned in this episode. We hope to resume these beginning teacher networking events in the spring.
