The Excellent Educators for All Initiative: Connecting State Priorities with Practical Induction and Mentoring Strategies
The Excellent Educators for All Initiative required that all states develop plans to ensure equitable access to excellent educators for all students. Many of these plans included strategies to continue or strengthen induction and mentoring. In February, 2016, Ellen Sherratt and Dalia Zabala presented on induction and mentoring strategies within state’s equity plans at the 18th National Symposium on Teacher Induction hosted by the New Teacher Center. Participants had an opportunity to connect their state’s equity plan with local induction and mentoring programs and develop action steps to improve induction and mentoring to better promote access to excellent educators for all students.
