This project is intended both to nurture new teachers in their demanding new roles as well as to provide stress management, self-care, and professional survival skills which will serve them and prevent burnout throughout their careers. In addition, by involving first-year teachers in an ongoing supportive dialogue with their mentors about effective, positive coping strategies, the project will positively impact the ongoing renewal and vitality of mentors. This personal and collaborative work, in tum, will have a positive impact on the students and the overall school culture, as cited in INTASC Disposition 10.25 (The teacher is willing to work with other professionals to improve the overall Teaming environment for students). If each teacher is well, then their classrooms and their schools also are more likely to be well.
