Call Me MISTER (Mentors Instructing Students Toward Effective Role Models) Defined: A highly acclaimed national recruitment and support program designed to increase the number of elementary school teachers with diverse backgrounds. Program participants are typically selected from under-served, socio-economically disadvantaged and educationally at risk communities. Due to the low number of males who choose elementary grades teaching as a profession, especially minority males, the program is critical for providing role models for young students of all ethnic and cultural backgrounds.
Call Me MISTER Vision: Newberry College is part of a national network of colleges and universities who are encouraging, equipping and supporting minority males to become elementary education teachers and leaders. The program will contribute to the available pool of exemplary teachers who are committed to making a positive difference in children’s lives.
Call Me MISTER Benefits: Participants in this leadership program that prepares future teachers will receive extensive mentoring, scholarship support and a vast amount of internship experiences that prepare them to succeed as elementary educators. With preparation and support from the Call Me MISTER program, it is the profound intent that Newberry College students will go on to pursue successful careers in the elementary schools of South Carolina.
Call Me MISTER Commitments: Students accepted into the program receive scholarship funding for four years and, in turn, commit to teach in an elementary school in South Carolina for each year they receive the scholarship funding.
Call Me MISTER Candidates: A successful candidate for Call Me MISTER possesses passion for teaching and is interested in exploring teaching as a career on the elementary level
Call Me MISTER Next Steps: Newberry College is very eager to speak with individuals and /or groups about this National Initiative. Please contact Mr. Reggie Wicker, Call Me MISTER Campus Director at 803-321-5201 or email@example.com
