About this Project Team:
Teacher shortages are present in every state and are especially high in science and mathematics. This team believes that teacher retention, not recruitment, is the root of the problem and part of its potential solution. The strategy for increasing teacher retention is ensuring that all teachers have access to mentor teachers as they progress in their careers. Our vision is to establish a framework that can be utilized by schools and states to develop classroom teachers to serve as peer mentors in a cost-effective, scalable model that will function to retain teachers in their first three years and create a career pathway for seasoned teachers.

Key words: Mentoring, Retention, Induction
