Ellen Moir, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of the New Teacher Center (NTC), a national organization dedicated to improving student learning by accelerating the effectiveness of new teachers and school leaders, has been named the 2014 Brock International Prize in Education Laureate. She is recognized as a passionate advocate for our nation’s newest teachers and for the students they teach.
Ellen founded NTC in 1998 to scale high quality teacher induction services to a national audience. NTC strengthens school communities through proven mentoring and professional development programs, online learning environments, policy advocacy, and research. NTC seeks to work in high-poverty schools in underserved communities to ensure that the nation’s low-income, minority, and English language learners–those students most often taught by inexperienced teachers–have the opportunity to receive an excellent education.
