New Teacher Induction / Mentoring Program

The purpose of the New Teacher Induction / Mentoring Program is to provide a new teacher in the district the assistance necessary to begin a successful teaching career through a mentoring relationship during their first two years of employment in our district.  This program will assist new teachers new to our district in a further understanding of teaching techniques, procedures, requirements, and expectations of their specific grade level or subject area assignment.


Program Goals:

  •  To acclimate new employees to the school district, procedures and policies;
  • To provide professional support and guidance that will enhance teaching performance  and student achievement;
  • To provide opportunities for the personal and professional growth of experienced teachers through collaboration with new teachers and other mentor teachers;
  • To provide resources, a time and place to collaborate, solve problems, and voice concerns;
  • To problem solve regarding stressors experienced by new teachers;
  • To provide and enhance teacher strategies inside the classroom.
