Our Mission:

1) To provide new teachers with a professional partnership (mentor) that offers personal and professional growth, development, and support.

2) To improve teacher retention rates (specifically with regard to our BIPOC teachers) by providing the resources, relationships, and supports new teachers need to thrive in our school community.

3) To foster the professional and personal growth of our mentor teachers by providing opportunities to collaborate with new teachers and other exemplary teachers in our program.

4) To provide mentors with professional development that enables them to better support and advocate for their mentees.

5) To provide new teachers support and guidance with implementing curriculum and best teaching practices in their content area.
