Teachers, Principals Encouraged to Participate in TELL-NM Survey

The deadline was extended so more APS teachers and principals can weigh in on a variety of issues related to student achievement and teacher retention.

Go here to complete the survey.

All school-based, licensed public school teachers and principals are encouraged to participate in the Teaching, Empowering, Leading and Learning (TELL) New Mexico Survey currently being administered to all licensed New Mexico educators employed in public and tribal schools. The deadline has been been extended to March 10.

Participants will be asked their perceptions on a variety of issues related to student achievement and teacher retention including:

  • the adequacy of facilities and resources
  • time, empowerment
  • school and teacher leadership
  • community support
  • managing of student conduct
  • professional development
  • mentoring
  • induction services.

The anonymous survey will provide valuable data for policymakers, educators, and stakeholders so they can make evidence-based decisions on policies and practices that will improve student achievement, as well as teacher preparation and retention.

To take the survey:

  1. Click on the 'Need Help?' button located on the home page on the TELL-NM website to request an anonymous code or
  2. Call the toll free Help Desk at 1-800-310-2964 (7:30 AM-4:30PM local time).
  3. Once you have a code, click on 'Take the Survey' on the website to begin the 20-30 minute survey.

The survey is being administered by the New Teacher Center (NTC), a national organization dedicated to supporting the development of a high-quality teaching force. NTC has conducted similar surveys in other states, and since 2009 has heard from more than one million educators. Results from the TELL New Mexico Survey will be analyzed and reported approximately five weeks after the close of the survey window. Results will be at the school (if at least 50 percent of educators responded), district, and state levels.

TELL New Mexico Partners include the New Mexico Public Education Department, New Mexico Coalition of Educational Leaders, New Mexico School Boards Association, National Education Association of New Mexico, New Mexico Association of Secondary School Principals, Bureau of Indian Education, and the American Federation of Teachers New Mexico.
