First-Year TeacherUNCC Region

Without my NC NTSP Coach this year, I would have left the teaching profession. At a time when too many teachers are leaving the field, this program is essential to help with teacher retention. I can’t sing the praises of the program & its Coaches enough. Any new teacher who participates in the NC NTSP is better able to become an excellent teacher & stay in the profession.”
