Eta State Project Ideas

Mentoring New Members
“Doing Kind Deeds for Delta Kappa Gamma” (DKD for DKG) is the new 
slogan for supporting beginning teachers across North Carolina. This 
project invites Eta State chapters to establish specific plans their 
members will take to show support for our newest teachers. Chapter 
members will brainstorm ways to offer support to beginning teachers in 
their surrounding schools/districts. These ideas will be shared among all 
Eta State chapters on the BTS Committee Blog.
 
The good deeds may range from 
• card or small tokens along with a note to say ‘thanks for choosing 
to be a teacher” (with DKG info. attached) 
• being invited to a chapter meeting’s Panel Discussion on “what is 
it like to be a beginning teacher at this point in time” 
• members hosting a “coffee and conversation time” and inviting 
beginning teachers to share their questions and receive 
encouragement. 
 
The designated DKD for DKG member will need to write up a 
description of each “kind deed” or activity to be submitted for ten point 
each for the Chapter Achievement Award. Think of the points as the 
number of attempts your chapter has made towards retaining great 
teachers, thanking them for all of those thankless day in and day out responsibilities but also showing how an organization of key women 
educators supports those just starting out in this most important job.
