Mentoring. Engage. Encourage. Empower.

South Dakota's Statewide Mentoring Program recognizes the important role mentors can play in retaining teachers in the profession. Through the program, the Department of Education provides first-year teachers access to a veteran teacher who offers support, encouragement, and experience throughout those critical first two years of teaching.
