Co-mentoring: beyond one-on-one. (Mathematics & Science).
Based on this concept of mentoring, the Maine Mathematics and Science Alliance's Northern New England Co-Mentoring Network will partner 60 mentor teachers from districts in Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont with beginning mathematics and science teachers.
Established with funding from the National Science Foundation, the three-year initiative addresses the need to support and retain qualified middle and high school teachers while building strong teacher leadership. Beginning with spring meetings in each state and a summer institute where experienced teachers will receive formal mentoring training, this network aims to develop a supportive learning community among teacher mentors, new teachers, higher education faculty and science and mathematics reform leaders. Mentors will also share their new skills through school- or district-wide learning communities--helping schools to create long-term, ongoing professional development practices.
