Teacher Education and Mentoring (TEAM)
For more than 10 years, teachers had asked CEA to work to bring change to the BEST program. With the help of members from across the state, change finally came in 2008. The resulting legislation eliminated BEST in June 2009, and created a special Task Force to design a new mentoring program.
CEA played a major role in creating what the Task Force first called the Mentor Assistance Program, whose name was later changed to Teacher Education and Mentoring, or TEAM.
