Non-Tenured & New Teachers

The journey to obtain tenure is not an easy one, but one that is well worth it.  As you continue to establish your professional image in the district remember that the BEA is here to help you along the way.  The “new teacher” links above contain tons of material that is useful to all teachers, so feel free to look at those for help and inspiration.

If you are beginning to contemplate establishing retirement accounts or purchasing insurance of any kind, the NJEA works with many different financial advisers that can be of assistance to you.  Check out the financial planning section of the Tenured Teachers page for links and more information on this.
