Dear Mentor Teacher,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for agreeing to mentor a student from the University of Akron this semester. Your commitment to our profession, in the form of mentoring a new teacher is invaluable. I appreciate and respect the time you will take to impact future teachers.

I would like to cordially invite you to view an online Mentor training module. The link to view this module will be on our Student Teaching web site under “Mentor Teacher.” There will also be a survey available that we would like you to fill out and give us feedback on how we meet your needs better.

Important dates, information and resources you need as a mentor are available on our website. Please go to You can type in Office of Student Teaching or click on the links for College of Education, then Office of Student Teaching. Once you get to our web site, you will see a link that says “Mentor teacher.” Click on that link and it will bring up all the information you will need.

If for some reason you cannot access the materials, please contact our office and we will make sure you receive the information and materials needed.
