CEC/CEC-Pioneers Division Mentoring Program

from CASE

Do you know a first through third year teacher who is struggling and could use advice and direction from an experienced CEC member? If so, participation by the teacher only requires a CEC membership. Mentors provide nonevaluative support by using technology (or face-to-face meetings if both are living in the same area) to communicate with the mentee. Areas of support include but are not limited to assistance with:
  • Instructional strategies
  • Classroom management
  • IEP development
  • Collaboration and co-teaching
  • Time management
  • Transition
  • Assessment and evaluation of students
  • High-leverage practices
  • Working with parents
Mentees report that the program is extremely helpful because it provides an experienced educator with whom they can share concerns and freely ask questions. When the mentor is a neutral person who is not evaluating performance, it's easier for mentees to feel comfortable in exploring issues of concern. Mentors assist by answering questions, providing suggested resources, and problem solving.

Mentors are matched with mentees by CEC, taking into consideration mentors' areas of expertise and mentees' areas of interest. To apply, mentees complete a simple online application available on CEC's website. Follow the same link if you would like more information about the mentoring program or how to apply to be a mentor yourself. You may also contact Jamie Hopkins, Chair of the CEC Mentor Program Steering Committee, at if you have questions or concerns. more
