Teacher FastTrack Retain

Join us on a journey to make the future of Nevada Teachers ready to move Nevada forward through variety of free resources.

Welcome to the
Teacher FastTrack Retain Community

The Nevada Educator Preparation Institute & Collaborative (NV-EPIC) offers three years of support, in partnership with the Public Education Foundation and the Clark County Education Association with the understanding that support beyond the program is vital to long-term retention; given the majority of new teachers leave within the first three years; tailored Teacher FastTrack Retain (TFT Retain) is committed to accompanying graduates.

TFT Retain initiative is about building a user-friendly website that will aid your induction into the school system and navigating your role as a new educator providing you with unlimited access to a variety of resources at your hand.

You can teach a student a lesson for a day, but if you can teach him to learn by creating curiosity, he will continue the learning process as long as he lives.

Welcome to our Virtual Office

Virtual office hours provide you an opportunity to engage each week with a master practitioner. Teaching can be a lonely profession – we want to ensure you are wrapped in support and always have access to a colleague who cares deeply about your success.

Sites for Educators

You will find both webinars for educators and social media platforms. Social networking sites provide endless opportunities for educators and can empower teachers to explore new ways of sharing information and build community. You will find a bundle of resources that teachers share with one another on their practice in the classroom.

LGBTQIA+ Students

Schools can foster safer, more supportive environments that offer a safe space for LGBTQIA+ youth from discrimination, violence, and bullying along with establishing practices that foster more affirming learning environments.

College and Career Readiness Dual Enrollment

High school students – individually or through institutional agreements with school districts – may enroll in classes and receive credit at post-secondary institutions. Nevada school districts have many options and partnerships with Nevada institutions for students to earn college credits during high school.

Mental Health

Mental health supports offer resources and curriculum to assist you in your classroom. Social Emotional Learning programs positively affect students’ success in school. Studies show that social-emotional skills-such as problem-solving, self-regulation, impulse control, and empathy-help improve academics, reduce negative social behaviors like bullying, and create positive classroom climates.
