    Re: TAP: Teacher Advancement Program

    I have been teaching at a TAP school for 5 years now and LOVE
    it. I am now a mentor teacher (teach 75% and mentor 25%).
    Obvioulsy some don't like it as much as I do, but it has made
    me a better teacher, a better learner, and I see a difference
    in our kids' learning. Feel free to email me with any
    specific questions you have!
