OEA's Early Career Educator Program
OEA’s Early Career Educator program is designed to support educators in the first five years of their careers by providing networking opportunities, mentorship programs, and professional development. We know those first few years as a new educator can be stressful, and we're here to help you find success in your new role and ensure you feel empowered to provide a world-class education to your students.
New Educators of Oregon Network (NEON)
Are you new to the profession? Looking for communal support with fellow new educators? The New Educators of Oregon Network (NEON) is a cohort based program with in-person convenings twice a year. The program is designed by and for Early Career Educators in the first five years of the profession, with an emphasis on those in their first three years. Past cohorts have focused on self-care, equity, setting and maintaining healthy boundaries, accessing union support, high quality communication skills, access to high quality professional learning, and other opportunities.
Through OEA's Aspiring Educator program, I have found a supportive community who will be with me every step of the way as I make my way in to the education profession as a new teacher.
