Each district is required to provide first year Initial Educators with a TRAINED mentor.  This one-day training provides Professional Educators with the specific skills, strategies and tools needed to successfully mentor a new colleague. The training emphasizes the following basic principles:

  • A period of induction is important for all initial educators.
  • A common vision is important to define effective educator practices.
  • The professional relationship between the initial educator and the mentor is  critical to the success of the induction program.
  • Initial educator’s attitudes and professional practice are dynamic; effective mentors align their support to educator needs.
  • Effective mentoring includes crucial conversations about improving professional practice.
  • Mentors help initial educators reflect and develop professional goals.
