"Mentoring is a long term relationship that meets a developmental need, helps develop full potential, and benefits all partners, mentor, mentee and the organization." -Suzanne Faure
TO engage each employee in meaningful learning experiences that support student success.
TO recruit, recognize, and retain high quality, effective personnel to support student success at every level.
Mentoring plays a critical role in continually improving the professional knowledge and skills that teachers need to instruct and prepare students for an unpredictable future. Having a mentor can be the support novice teachers need to stay confident and remain in the profession. The Mission of Little Elm ISD teacher mentoring program is to provide that essential support for teachers new to LEISD and new to the profession of teaching.
Novice teachers will be provided the assistance necessary to begin a successful teaching career through a mentoring relationship during their first two years of employment in Little Elm ISD (LEISD).
Veteran teachers new to LEISD will be provided support through mentorship throughout their first year of employment in the district. After successful completion of the Teacher Mentoring Program, protege teachers (teachers who have been mentored) will have the opportunity to become mentors for incoming educators.
