Trellis Mentor Fellows Among 2016 LIGHT Awardees

The team of six high school teachers at three high schools across the Bay Area are part of the Trellis Mentor Fellowship, through which they have all made a five-year commitment to mentoring new teachers. They will mentor brand new teachers placed at their sites in Fall 2016, then will continue mentoring these teachers as they enter classrooms of their own in order to develop a six-year model for mentoring new STEM teachers. To support this clinical work, they will engage in professional learning activities related to mentoring such as the New Teacher Center Mentor Academy Series and other STEM-specific and site-specific teaching workshops and resources. The team aims to develop and enact a long-term model of mentoring, with the belief that strong mentors make expert teachers.
