Mentoring Program

The Glenwood Community School District utilizes "Journey to Excellence" for our mentor training and induction program for new teachers to the profession.

"Journey to Excellence" is a new mentoring and induction model created for Iowa schools and AEAs that focuses learning projects for beginning educators on each of the Iowa Teaching Standards. It was created by a team from ISEA, the Iowa Department of Education, districts, and AEAs. It is designed to provide meaningful support for beginning educators, to prepare and support mentors with quality preparation, and be affordable. A great deal of information can be found on AEA 13's website:
