Teaching: you don’t have to do it alone! As a new teacher, or someone new to a grade level or subject area, things can get overwhelming. There’s a lot of responsibility on your plate, and you’re working very hard. Studies show that when teachers support one another, everyone benefits. Whether you’re brand new or experienced, joining the joint STA/SD 36 mentorship program can be a wonderful experience.

Mentors and mentees work together in cohort learning groups. There are many opportunities for collaboration, sharing, asking questions, and supporting one another. Last year, in addition to the mentorship sessions, participants enjoyed a retreat to Harrison Hot Springs and a year-end celebration. The learning and collaboration were invaluable!

The project is currently accepting applications from both mentees and mentors for the upcoming school year.

For more information, and to apply, visit the Mentor 36 website.
Please share this opportunity with anyone who might be interested! Questions can be directed to STA Support Services officer Christy Weigel via services@surreyteachers.org.
