The KEEPS Program is a two-year program for first and second-year teachers new to MISD.

The goal of the KEEPS Program is to provide a network of professional resources for incoming teachers to access information and receive training and mentoring. This mentoring will be provided through ongoing knowledge-based encounters between the new teacher and mentor in helping to improve teacher performance.

Some of the benefits new teachers gain from the program are:

  • Mentoring Support (1-on-1 Mentor-Mentee Relationships)
  • District and Campus Orientations
  • Professional Growth Resources
  • Collaboration / Observation Time
  • Campus-Level New Teacher Meetings
  • District-Level Conferences
  • Appreciation Event
  • Year-End Recognition and Reflection
  • Mutual Support
  • Professional Growth
