The National Council on Teacher Quality plans to release a comprehensive study related to New Mexico’s prospective teachers.
The report is titled “Preparing Tomorrow’s Teachers: Are New Mexico’s education school graduates ready to teach reading and mathematics in elementary classrooms?”
Los Alamos Public Schools Superintendent Gene Schmidt said he knows a lot about the teacher preparation study and has conducted a study of his own.
“I’ve been involved since the day after school started, on a listening and learning tour,” he said. “I visited all the new teachers in the district. I’ve been in about six of the seven buildings for extended amounts of time, in not only the beginning teachers’ classrooms, but also the veteran teachers, to get a flavor of what our teachers are like.”
Schmidt said the impressions he’s receiving of the teachers in the Los Alamos Public School system are favorable.
He also complimented the principals and hiring teams in the selection process when it comes to hiring teachers.
“They are top-notch people. Not only do they have good instructional skills, but they have deep knowledge and background,” he commented.
