  • New Educator Orientation

  • New Educator Induction & Mentoring 


    PPS provides a Mentoring and Induction program for first and second year teachers; it is called Mentoring 4 Excellence. The program offers its own orientation, which is optional but highly recommended. The orientation will allow you an opportunity to learn more about the mentor program, meet the mentors and apply for a mentor if you have not already done so. You will also have the opportunity to hear more about topics that will help you start your first week with students: classroom management, Guaranteed and Viable Curriculum and other strategies.

    Questions about this program can be directed to Sarah Fish, Assistant Director for New Educator Mentor Program, sfish@pps.net, 503-916-3381 (office). Please click here to apply online.
