New Teacher Orientation Workshop

First day jitters? No problem. This workshop provides an introduction to independent schools for teachers new to the profession in our member schools and/or new experienced teachers to CIS Ontario schools. It's also an opportunity for teachers to make connections with educators within the member community and get a crash course on the culture of independent school life in Ontario. You'll also get pro tips on supporting learning.
