Supporting Teachers through Exemplary Practice

In the HISD mentor program, our eyes are on the prize. It’s all about student achievement, and when we focus on teachers our students succeed.

Accelerating teacher effectiveness, so that new teachers quickly become skillful, represents one of the greatest opportunities for change in education today.

HISD’s comprehensive teacher induction program incorporates a broad set of supports including one-on-one campus-based mentoring and multiple professional development opportunities grounded in the HISD Instructional Practice Rubric.
