STEP is a program of assistance and support for new teachers entering service for the first time in a Louisiana public school system. During the first two years of employment, new teachers are provided mentor support. The responsibilities of the mentor (and the principal) are linked directly to the Louisiana Components of Effective Teaching (LCET). Mentors will encourage and coach the new teachers; and guide their professional development activities.
The STEP Program is designed to help new teachers become competent, confident professionals in the classroom, and assist the new teachers in meeting the performance standards established as criteria for certification.
