Who can be a mentor?
Mentors are teachers who have completed three or more years as a successful teacher of record under an initial and/or standard educator's license. All mentors must be trained and certified in the Arkansas Mentoring Model, and approved in the Arkansas Teacher Licensure Accountability System (ATLAS) before being assigned to a novice teacher.
A teacher who qualifies to become a mentor must be recommended by his/her school district or building level administrator in order to attend mentor training. The Mentor Training Recommendation Form must be brought by the prospective mentor to the mentor training, or the recommendation can be signed, uploaded to a computer, and emailed by the school district or building level administrator to the contact person for the designated mentor training.
Further information on becoming a mentor is available at each school district through the school district's Mentoring Project Director.« Back to FAQs
