Your Peer Collaborator
A peer collaborator will be assigned to you at your school. This teacher can help youfind
materials and supplies
in your school as well as introduce you to the school’sculture (and tell you how to work the photocopier). Your peer collaborator can shareideas for classroom management, working with parents, and motivating students. He orshe can also direct you to others in the school or district who can answer specificquestions.
You and your peer collaborator are required to complete a
checklist
of important topicsand submit it to your building principal. See next page for a sample.
Let your mentor know who has been assigned as your peer collaborator.
Get a
phone number
for your peer collaborator.
If your peer collaborator does not teach the same subject or courses that you teach,develop a
professional friend
who is willing to share sample lessons and resources.
You are a professional educator and your peer collaborator is a colleague. He or sheshould not do your work for you or serve as a teacher’s aide.
Although the teacher / district mentor
relationship
is completely confidential, this maynot be the case with the teacher / peer collaborator.
If your peer collaborator does not contact you regularly, it is OK for you to send an
email
to him/her at the end of each month to ask if there is anything special youshould know about for the coming month. After the beginning of the school year, yourpeer collaborator may forget to inform you of special traditions at your school. (fieldday at middle schools? t-shirts? lunch?)
Part of the induction program is to have new teachers observe veteran teachers
. Youcan learn a tremendous amount by watching the way other teachers instruct, relate,discipline, and inspire students. You are expected to do at least
four observations
this year. Each school will have a procedure for scheduling these observations. Find out howthese observations will be scheduled. If you would like to observe a specific teacher, youmay have the opportunity to request it.
