The induction and mentoring of new teachers to the profession is an incredibly important process and one that can be extremely rewarding for veteran teachers as a way of giving back to the profession.  Having the tools to support new educators with a range of needs is an important component of being a successful mentor. It is our hope that this site will be a good resource for all mentors and mentees in Franklin.

Franklin High School Mentoring Program After-School Meeting Overview  2019­-2020

Program Goal: The Franklin High School mentoring program exists as a support system for teachers and education professionals new to the work of education, new to Franklin High School, or both.  Mentor meetings provide a venue for new members of the FHS community to forge lasting interpersonal relationships with peers and mentors while also participating in meaningful conversations and sessions on topics relevant to the work of an educator.  Ultimately, both the mentor-mentee pairings and the mentoring meetings serve as networks of professional support to ensure that every educator at FHS has the tools necessary to be successful.

Required Meetings:

Mentors and Mentees are required to attend the first and last mentoring sessions of the year.

Mentors and mentees then choose one session per quarter to attend from the options listed.
Optional Meetings:
Mentors and mentees may choose to attend additional quarterly sessions beyond the one per term that is required.

All meetings will take place from 2:20 - 3:20 in the Lecture Hall unless otherwise noted.  More detailed agenda will be provided prior to the meeting dates.
