Teacher Mentoring

Welcome to the Teacher Mentoring Hub where you can access high-quality, peer-reviewed resources and professional learning aligned to the teacher mentor roles and competencies and engage with other teacher mentors and mentoring leaders throughout the state.

About Hub

Developing and retaining high-quality educators is essential to student success.  Teacher mentoring is a critical component of supporting beginning educators as they acclimate to their local environments and to the teaching profession.  The ideal teacher mentor acts as an advocate, colleague, confidant, facilitator, friend, and model for the beginning teacher.  The resources available in this hub are intended to support teacher mentors in understanding their role and engaging in ongoing professional growth to better meet the needs of their mentees.
