I'm pleased that you will be supporting your first-year teacher by providing him/her with a mentor through the ND Teacher Support System Mentoring Program. In order to provide us with the information we need to get everyone enrolled in the program, please fill out the form below. When we receive contact information we will send out necessary information to mentors and first-year teachers so they can take their next steps.
To fill out the form you will need to have an active email address for each participant so we can contact them. As a general rule, the building administrator you register should be the principal of the building where the first-year teacher works.
YOUR APPLICATION CERTIFIES THAT THE FIRST-YEAR TEACHER MEETS THE FOLLOWING REQUIREMENTS:
A first-year teacher is defined as A LICENSED TEACHER IN THE FIRST YEAR OF CONTRACTED TEACHING IN A P-12 SCHOOL. Because of changes in the legislation, we ARE now able to serve teachers who are employed by BIE schools, Special Education Units, Career and Technical Education Centers and REA’s. Teachers in private schools and those presently participating in Resident Teacher Programs are still not eligible to receive services through our program.
I look forward to working with you to support your first-year teacher. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if I can ever be of help.
