e-Mentoring for Student Success (eMSS)
The New Teacher Center e-Mentoring for Student Success (eMSS) is an innovative, nationwide content and exceptionality specific online mentoring program that advances instruction for all students by accelerating the effectiveness and increasing the retention of new teachers.
Talented teachers are often in short supply in hard-to-staff schools. School leaders have limited availability to release the few content experts available from their classrooms to focus on instructional mentoring or professional development of their newer colleagues. Even with face-to-face induction and mentoring programs in place teachers may have nowhere to turn for content or exceptionality specific support or professional development related to their subject area.
