The Teaching Excellence program provides transformational support through proven coaching strategies, impactful professional learning and a streamlined Alternative Certification Pathway (ACP) for all teachers new to YES Prep, as well as select teachers from KIPP Houston, Spring Branch ISD, BakerRipley, Etoile Academy, Yellowstone Academy/Charter Prep, and Aldine ISD.
Teaching Excellence exists to accelerate teacher effectiveness in year one and beyond. For over a decade Teaching Excellence (TE) has existed to transform talent by providing exceptional coaching and professional development in order to accelerate teacher effectiveness.
TE offers rigorous and relevant training along with individualized coaching support to increase teacher effectiveness and propel teachers’ classrooms to new levels. Proven and adopted by schools aiming for higher standards, Teaching Excellence has been responsible for the development and certification of literally thousands of teachers across Houston.
TE thinks through every aspect of what makes a teacher successful and rolls them out throughout the year at times when they feel extremely relevant to me. I am learning strategies and concepts at the times I really need them.
