New Teacher Support

Welcome to New Teacher Support

Whether new to the profession or new to our district, every new Richmond Public School teacher becomes an integral part of our team. Within a learning community of administrators, mentors, and colleagues, new teachers can come here to find the resources needed to make their first years with RPS productive and successful. 

RPS is devoted to helping all teachers develop effective instructional practices, to meet the challenges of diverse student learning needs, and to reach their own potential as education professionals.
