Attleboro’s Mentor Program is designed by teachers for all incoming teachers, beginning or new to Attleboro.  The program’s goal is to help ensure a fully qualified and a fully satisfied teacher in every classroom.  To that end, all incoming teachers are assigned a mentor to help acclimate them to Attleboro’s policies and procedures.  In addition, mentors provide help as needed or desired in instructional techniques, curriculum, planning, assessment, and other areas for the classroom or office.  Mentors also help new teachers network with building and system colleagues to build a support team.  The program supports new teachers in other ways as well:  new teacher-mentor meetings, a monthly newsletter, training for mentors, and current research on mentoring and teaching.  The Mentor Program maintains a website at
