Name of Teacher Induction Program: Quality Mentoring for Exceptional Teaching (QMET2.0)

Program Overview:


Beginning teachers face many challenges. The reality of a public school classroom may be one of the most challenging transitions faced by teachers in their entire professional careers. The expectations that teachers will apply theoretical knowledge, develop effective instructional strategies, meet individual student’s needs, incorporate changing curriculum frameworks, develop high stakes assessment, integrate emerging technology, and remain sensitive to societal issues create a formidable challenge for beginning teachers as they begin their careers within the Shenandoah County Public School Division.

The Shenandoah County Public Schools’ QMET2.0 Program will help beginning teachers make a successful transition into the teaching profession by relying on the expertise of veterans to provide a clinical real-world training process. Beginning teachers network with mentors who provide on-going support through observing, modeling, sharing ideas and skills, and recommending materials for further study for classroom use in teaching the grade-level curriculum.

The Shenandoah County Public Schools’ QMET2.0 Program will effectively support new teachers entering the educational field and attract the most capable and talented candidates for new positions, which will ultimately serve to provide Shenandoah County the highest quality professional educators in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
