Teaching is fun and very fulfilling, yet sometimes challenging. We all know it's the most important profession there is. To help support our teachers Austin ISD provides training, professional development, and other resources for its teachers.

New teachers receive support before, during and beyond their induction year with the district. Support includes a five-day New Teacher Orientation, New Teacher Handbooks, Instructional Planning Guides, Mentor Teachers and New Teacher Support Groups.

There are also many opportunities for experienced teachers. AISD has more National Board Certified teachers than any other Texas district. AISD teachers in a variety of age and teaching fields are pursuing their candidacy with the support of the Professional Development Department. As a member of this cohort group, candidates have the advantage of coaching and support by teachers who have been through the process.
