INTC Annual Leadership Conference

The Illinois New Teacher Collaborative was formed in 2004 to be a catalyst in the establishment and support of induction and mentoring programs for first- and second-year teachers across Illinois.

In 2006, INTC launched a leadership conference to support schools and districts as they welcomed new teachers into their communities. INTC invites higher education, state educational agencies, administrators, teacher mentors, and new teachers to come to learn and grow with educators from Illinois and across the country.
