New Teacher Mentoring Services

Campbell County Mission Statement: To provide a world-class education that enables every student to choose and pursue any post K12 endeavor.

Mentoring Services Goal:

Coordinators of Mentoring Services Kim Briggs and Mark Wilburn

Teaching is rewarding, but also challenging. In Campbell County, teachers have always been collaborative and collegial, willing to help and support those new to the profession.  This sort of informal exchange is a vital part of our professional culture. We guarantee to provide all teachers new to CCPS with mentoring. This is when assigned mentors intentionally team up to help new teachers become familiar with their campuses, communities, day-to-day needs, and district expectations.

While all newly hired teachers are assigned mentors, teachers new to the profession will be given a more formal process of professional induction to ensure that students of Campbell County Schools have an excellent teacher in every classroom. Quality mentoring is crucial to attracting, developing, and retaining great teachers. The Campbell County New Teacher Mentoring program is designed to provide new teachers with the support and structure necessary for success.

Under the direction of our Director of Personnel, our Mentoring Coordinators facilitate research-based mentoring cycles to support teachers by providing modeled instruction, non-evaluative feedback, and guided coaching conversations. We refer to our targeted skills during each cycle as high-yield, low-prep strategies for maximizing success for everyone in the classroom. These include developmental areas such as Classroom Management, Teacher Radar, Purposeful Monitoring, Student Talk, Formative Assessment, and Collaboration.
