Mentor Protégé

"The purpose of the mentoring requirement is to provide beginning educators in teaching or school building leadership service with support in order to gain skillfulness and more easily make the transition to one’s first professional experience under an Initial certificate. Satisfaction of a mentored experience is one of the requirements individuals must meet in order to qualify for the Professional certificate."
