Mentoring Action Guide for New Teachers

After receiving many requests, I'm excited to share my school's Mentoring Guidebook with you! You can, of course, download it for free and edit it for your school. 

The goal of the guide is to enhance new employee performance and retain early career teachers in the profession or new to the district.

Here are just a few things that the program contains: 

  • Program overview and purpose
  • Roles and responsibilities for the mentor, principal, and coordinator
  • Confidentiality Agreement 
  • Monthly Mentor/Mentee checklists
  • Pre and Post-Observation questions

At the beginning of the year, I conduct an orientation with the mentors and mentees where they learn about the school's vision. If your school doesn't have a vision or if it is in need of an update, I've got you covered. My school uses the strategic plan outlined in the Transform Your School course. In a nutshell, the course is where you can learn the process our district implemented to excel our student and teacher growth from being low performing to achieving a Blue Ribbon Award.

Additionally, each month we have "Coffee Chats" which is when we discuss Learning by Doing. I highly recommend this book!

I recently wrapped up a week of sharing back-to-school resources in response to COVID-19. Each day I posted my school's resources and other helpful content. If you are looking for something in particular, you can probably find it in one of these posts:
