Upper Valley Teacher Training Program, Inc. Overview
Programs: The Upper Valley Teacher Institute's teacher preparation program is based in classrooms and designed for adult college graduates who have usually had other careers before deciding to become teachers. The UVTI model differs from university post-graduate programs in education by reversing the percentage of time traditionally allotted to academic theory and classroom practice. Since teaching is an art best learned through practice, intern's work full-time in a classroom under the tutelage of mentor teachers, who are chosen from among the best professionals in the region. In addition, interns are observed and supported by supervisors on the UVTI staff who are highly experienced educators. This practical experience is reinforced by weekly seminars in which interns study the topics normally covered in conventional academic programs. The aim of the interns' mentors and the purpose of the seminars are the same: to help interns develop and prove their competence as classroom teachers. Successful completion of the program is based on the demonstration of specific teaching competencies.
