Sumter Today: Mentors help guide first year teachers in Sumter schools


Sumter School District currently has 134 trained mentors who work with teachers, and 85 of them this year are working with new teachers. Mentors meet with their mentee twice a month to talk about any issues the teacher may have and provide support during a critical year on the job. We talked with a few pairs to see how the relationship is benefitting the classroom.
