Partners Through Experience
Partners Through Experience is a voluntary program that brings together a new member (1-3 years of experience) with a recent retiree (1-5 years retired) to form a confidential and collaborative relationship. By matching a new member with a veteran educator, a supportive collaboration can begin.
If you're a new member or a recent retiree who is interested in participating, register online »
