Individualizing Mentoring for Induction Candidates: The Impact of the Teacher Preparation Pathway

We will explore the shared experiences and individual perspectives of various pathways to a preliminary credential in California. The pathway impacts how to individualize the induction program to meet the needs of the induction candidate and the students in the candidate’s classroom. Participants will examine scenarios and discuss how to equitably mentor and support teachers during induction who may be true first year teachers or may have many years of experience in the classroom.
