New Teacher Support

    I am seeking a high school Language Arts instructional
    position with DPS for the upcoming academic year.

    It would seem like a good idea if myself and other "newbies"
    could somehow network or meet to establish some
    communication. Is there anything like this in Colorado? It
    seems that unless you already are established and know
    others, there is no support of any kind for first year or
    new teachers or those seeking employment as a teacher.

    I've searched and other websites for teacher
    support groups and found nothing listed for Colorado.
    So...does anyone have any feedback on this? It would be
    obviously very beneficial to be able to "talk shop" with
    more experienced teachers, get input on potential lesson
    plans, and so forth.

    Please help if interested in doing so.
