Washington Central Unified Union School District is committed to supporting new teachers. To that end, we have established the WCUUSD Teacher Mentoring Program. Our mentor coordinators for 2020-2021 are Sam Mishkin, music teacher at East Montpelier Elementary School, and Adrian Wade-Keeney, art teacher at U-32 Middle/High School.

This site contains the information that mentors and new teachers will need to access during our summer training days.

For the 2020-2021 school year, mentor training will take place on Friday, August 21 in Room 128/131 at U-32 Middle/High School from 8:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. followed by a mentor/mentee meeting from 12:00-3:30 p.m.

New teacher orientation will take place on Wednesday, August 19, Thursday, August 20 and Friday, August 21 in Rooms 128/131 and/or 120, 122, and 123 at U-32 Middle/High School from 8:00 a.m.-3:30 p.m. (including the mentor/mentee meeting on Friday, August 21 from 12:00-3:30 p.m.). Elementary teachers will meet in Room 122 and middle/high school teachers will meet in Room 128/131 on Wednesday morning, August 19.

Please bring an electronic device (preferably your school-issued laptop) each day so that you can access all training materials.

Coffee and lunch are on your own. Please plan accordingly.

For 2020-2021, please plan to arrive in time to complete the health screening as your enter the building each morning.

If you have any questions or concerns about mentor training or new teacher orientation, please contact Jen Miller-Arsenault, Director of Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment, at jmillerarsenault@u32.org or 229-0553 x1310.
