DESCRIPTION:  

  • Why is mentoring so important: There are not enough educators to fill all of our positions, so our goal is to keep those educators that we are fortunate enough to hire.  We feel that the best way to do that is to offer them support, collegiality, and collaboration as a first-year teacher.  Through this program, we will be providing an avenue for personal and professional growth, which will allow these new teachers to build the self-confidence they need in order to be effective educators. Our goal is to provide the resources that these new teachers need in order to reach their capacity and to grow in the profession.

  • What does this program look like: As part of the mentoring and induction program, teachers will meet monthly for (1 hour) to discuss preplanned topics, as well as answers and discussions around topics and questions submitted by teachers.  These meetings will be held remotely via Zoom. Topics will be presented in the month that most closely align to when that information will be needed.  Additionally, teachers will be divided by mentors and each mentor will have dedicated office hours (2 hours a month) where those teachers can email, call, text, or jump on a pre-established Google Meet or Zoom link in order to get their questions answered.  Throughout the year, mentors will be sharing documents with new teachers such as articles, PowerPoints, Google Docs, etc. that will help the new teachers in their learning.
