Assigned to each Intern is an experienced like-credentialed Lead Mentor who supports and guides the Intern for two years throughout their Portfolio Practicum, based on the Intern’s classroom assignment and the California Teaching Performance Expectations (TPEs).
The iCAAP Teacher Induction program prepares Education Specialists and District Intern graduates for the California Clear Credential. The intent of the 24-month program is to provide an opportunity for each Candidate to grow in their capacity as a teacher through an individualized program of reflection supported and directed by like-credentialed Lead Mentors.
