• Welcome to the Beginning Teacher Support Program!

    If you are a beginning teacher and new to Brunswick County Schools, we are excited to have you start your teaching career here with us!

    Brunswick County Schools’ Vision is to have “a community of well-educated, employable, and socially responsible citizens.”  Our Mission is “to produce college and career ready high school graduates.” With our focus on growing students from crayons to college and career readiness, we take pride in supporting and growing our faculty and staff.  It takes a village to raise a child, and every child in Brunswick County Schools matters!

    In our Here We Grow! 2019-2024 Strategic Plan, Goal 3 states that “Every student, every day has excellent educators.”  The District Beginning Teacher Support Team and every school Beginning Teacher Support Team is here to help every new teacher grow into an effective teacher who changes the lives of every child in his/her class.  

    The Beginning Teacher Program begins with a 3-day professional development induction designed to welcome new teachers to Brunswick County Schools, promote strong instructional and classroom practices and to grow every educator where he/she is.  Each Beginning Teacher is provided an on-site mentor to support their professional growth journey.  In addition, each school site has a site coordinator who organizes monthly site specific growth opportunities. And, the district BT coordinator is here to support every beginning teacher, mentor and site coordinator.  Our Beginning Teacher Support Team is here to support beginning teachers in their professional journal as they work to provide personalized learning for the students in Brunswick County.  


    Brunswick County Schools has digitized much of its BTSP program with the primary learning management system being housed in Google Classroom.  This allows both face-to-face and online collaboration, training and professional learning.  While the Beginning Teacher portfolio, files and information are uploaded to Google Classroom, it is highly recommended that each teacher maintain individual files.  BTs should see their school BT Coordinator for information on accessing your school's BT Google Classroom.
