Power52 was one of the sponsors for Baltimore City Schools Mentor program for new teachers. The City Schools Site Based Mentoring Program is a part of the Maryland Department of Education’s Comprehensive Teacher Induction Program. Every teacher between years 1-3 receives a mentor who supports, advocates for, and gives feedback regarding personal and professional growth.
New teachers have the benefit of working with a mentor who is often a veteran teacher, with at least 5 years of experience and a plethora of resources that he/she is willing to freely give to any and all New Teachers.
During the summer academy our team endeavors to build community for the mentors in such a way that the tenets can be transferred to New Teachers across the district during the entire year. We situate the mentors from the perspective of the coach and highlight their expertise and value as life long learners and educators.
