Teacher Mentor Program

Our Teacher Mentor Program at Brimmer is designed to support classroom performance, foster an understanding of working within the “Brimmer culture,” provide opportunities for collaboration and professional growth, and to support new teachers in all areas of life at Brimmer. Each new teacher is paired with a colleague who serves as their mentor for two years. New faculty meet with their mentors regularly, as a cohort with the Co-Directors of Hiring and Mentoring, and in Critical Friends Groups. Mentors also meet regularly as a group to discuss best practice as they work to support our new faculty.
