The TEACHER MENTORSHIP PROGRAM (co-sponsored by the Surrey Teachers’ Association & School District 36):

Many teachers find supportive, understanding colleagues at their schools, and to help support and formalize those relationships, the STA and the School district sponsor a Teacher Mentorship Program. This is a wonderful opportunity for new teachers to benefit from the expertise of a more experienced colleague, someone with a sympathetic ear, and someone who will be there to answer their questions. For mentors, working with new, enthusiastic teachers is always a rewarding and re-vitalizing opportunity—you will undoubtedly find yourself rejuvenated by their optimism and energy! Please consider signing up as a mentor or new teacher.

Who can join?

  1. New contract teachers who have not previously participated in the program.
  2. Experienced teachers with more than 3 years teaching experience.

What does it involve?

Commitment to attend 4 after-school whole-group sessions and informal meetings / communication with your partner.

For more information, please the Professional Issues officer at the STA office – 604-594-5353

If you already have someone in mind you would like to work with, please submit your applications together. If not, we try to pair people up with someone at a nearby school, who is teaching the same (or as close as possible) grade/subjects.

Information/application forms are in the schools and can be downloaded here:
