The Mentor program is a partnership between the Albuquerque Public Schools and the Albuquerque Teachers Federation.
The Mentor Program takes a comprehensive approach to providing qualified, site-based mentors for beginning teachers in the Albuquerque Public School District.
The chief role of a mentor is offering support and practical advice to beginning teachers based on observation and discussion of the beginning teacher’s professional experiences.
- To provide beginning teachers an effective transition into the teaching profession
- To increase the retention rate of beginning teachers
- To have a positive effect on student achievement, and
- To create a more comprehensive mentoring program by bringing various efforts to support beginning teachers together in a more intensive district wide program
