Cultivating Commitment: Enhancing Employee Retention through Mentoring and Induction Programs

February 22, 2024 | 11:00am - 12:00pm CST

Jalitza Martinez, Associate Superintendent of Staff and District Operations, & Amanda Sanderson, Director of Human Resources, from East Aurora District 131 will be presenting. 

In this presentation, we will delve into the critical issue of teacher retention and unveil the transformative impact of mentoring and induction programs in the education sector. Recognizing the unique challenges faced by teachers and other staff, we will explore how mentorship and robust onboarding can provide invaluable support, professional growth, and a sense of community. We will highlight our mentoring program that spans over four days, with additional planned community building events throughout the year. Our large unit school district has experienced an increase in retention over the last three years, surpassing the state average in 2023. The session aims to equip educational leaders with the tools needed to implement effective mentoring programs that not only foster a positive work environment but also contribute significantly to the long-term retention and more resilient teaching workforce.
