Dr. Ellen Moir, executive director of the New Teacher Center at the University of California Santa Cruz, will visit the University of Memphis to discuss "Instructional Mentoring: A Blueprint for New Teacher Success."

Moir, who recently received the prestigious Harold W. McGraw Jr. Prize in Education, will speak Jan. 26 at the U of M's FedEx Institute of Technology. Her lecture begins at 5 p.m., followed by a reception from 6 to 7:30.

The event is free and open to the public.

Preparing teachers for success through preparation, induction, and support has been Moir's focus at the New Teacher Center for the past 18 years. Founded in 1988, the Center provides an environment where educators and researchers study, develop, and administer new teacher support programs.

In 2003, the New Teacher Center at the University of Memphis became the first and only affiliate outside of California that is licensed to offer this program. The U of M New Teacher Center will be honored at an upcoming Tennessee Board of Regents meeting with TBR's "Academic Excellence Award."

Sponsors of Dr. Moir's visit are the U of M's New Teacher Center and Partners in Public Education.
