2016-2017 Humble ISD Mentor Program Handbook
Being selected to mentor a teacher who is new to the profession is a challenging, yet highly rewarding job. Individual campus mentors who assist Humble ISD's new to profession teachers will be asked to follow a set of guidelines and procedures for accountability purposes in regards to the stipend that is received for this position.
The text used by the mentors will be supplied by the Professional Development department at the first Mentor's Meeting.
Rutherford's The 21st Century Mentor's Handbook: Creating a Culture for Learning will be the text used to guide meetings, discussions, and activities between the mentor and the new teacher.
Mentors will return this book at the completion of the Spring semester.
