• This page is designed to provide new teachers and their mentors with information and resources to support the critical first years of teaching with Berkley Public Schools. 

    The mission of the Induction and Mentoring Program is to improve teaching, and thus student learning, by providing support, encouragement, and guidance to teachers new to the profession, teachers new to the Berkley Public Schools, teachers who have changed their assignment, and any teacher in need of coaching assistance. The program promotes collegiality and supports the attainment of educator goals through a comprehensive orientation, scheduled observations, confidential conversations between the mentor and mentees, and the development of effective teaching practices that support the four standards of the Massachusetts Educator Evaluation. 


    Lead Mentors for Berkley Public Schools are:

    Diana Freitas, Berkley Community School - dfreitas@berkleypublicschools.org

    Michelle Graca, Berkley Middle School - mgraca@berkleypublicschools.org
