WHAT IS pep?


PEP is an acronym for Peer Enrichment Program. PEP was developed through a collaboration between the San Diego Unified School District and the SDEA. PEP offers a unique approach to supporting teachers. PEP is a support mechanism that enables exemplary teachers to assist their peers in subject matter knowledge and/or teaching strategies.


Consulting Teachers are credentialed classroom teachers. They strive to improve teaching and learning through direct support of classroom teachers. All support is confidential and non-evaluative. Support is individualized and focuses on specific areas of instructional practice depending on participants' needs. Consulting Teachers and Participating Teachers meet weekly for support.


Voluntary Participation

All classroom teachers may request support. Areas of support include:

  • Setting up your classroom to incorporate structures and procedures to support student learning
  • Developing visual supports
  • Planning for the first two weeks of school: student engagement and curriculum implementation
  • Incorporating technology as an engagement tool
  • Supporting with SPED: aligning goals to instruction, creating data collection sheets, small group instruction, organization of IEP implementation, communication with parents, teachers, para-educators, scheduling student support, etc.
  • Student Assessment

  • Math: A PEP teacher will work with you to design a lesson then model/ co-teach the lesson(s).
