The Deering Mentoring Program

The DHSMentoring Program

• DHS Mentoring is a student-led, student-centered program where Deering seniors are mentors for Deering freshman. The goals of theprogram are applied leadership and educational engagement.

• We recognize seniors as a valuable educational resource and as mentors they use their knowledge and experience to help freshmen navigate and balance their time to gain the most from their education

at Deering

• For freshmen DHSMentoring is a fun way to engage in the DHS community, explore educational opportunities, build their extracurric- ular profile, and get academic help as needed from their senior men-tor

• Each senior is matched individually with a freshman based on acad-

emic and extra-curricular interests and experience
• Mentoring pairs meet once a week throughout the school year during

WINN or another agreed upon time
• Each mentoring relationship is unique and how each pair uses their

time together is determined by student need and interest

• Our Mentoring Coordinator, Roy Chatterjee, works with each pair throughout the year to provide guidance and give advice as needed. Roy can be reached by email: chattr@portlandschools.org; by

phone: 207-239-9123; or in person at Deering High School Rm 323;
