Welcome to the Mentoring and Induction Page
We are excited to be the District Mentor Teachers On Special Assignment (TOSA)* for the 2021-2022 school year. Our district is dedicated to the success of all members of our school community--students and educators. As the district mentors, we will be integrating new educators into the culture and climate of Tri-City United Schools along with supporting professional growth through the mentorship process. Several Mentoring and Induction resources and supports are available on this page. Please contact us at any time if you need anything.
