The CEC Mentoring Program is officially open for the 2019-2020 school year!

Applications close in December, but act now to make the most of your whole year!

The CEC Mentoring Program pairs CEC members who are new teachers or teacher candidates with CEC members who are seasoned professionals in special education to form a non-evaluating mentoring partnership. 


Here's how the program works:

Who & What: If you're a new teacher or teacher candidate with fewer than three years of professional experience—and an active CEC member—you will be paired with a mentor.
