HMS Teacher Mentoring Program

Welcome to the Hobbs Municipal School District's Mentor Program Website.

The Mentor Program is designed to provide quality support to beginning teachers in the Hobbs Municipal School District.

The effective mentor serves as a coach to offer support and practical advice to beginning teachers based on observation and conversation of the beginning teacher's professional experiences. The mentor and the new teacher come together as a professional learning community where the focus is placed on student achievement and authentic pedagogy. In depth conversations will revolve around the science of teaching, exploring best practices, the outcomes of student learning, and the New Mexico State Teaching Competencies. Additionally, the beginning teacher will recieve content specialty support from fellow teachers practicing in the same grade level/content area during PLC and grade level/content meetings.
