Alpha Alpha participates in DKG's second international program, Supporting Early-Career Educators (SEE). The SEE program, established in 2012, seeks to encourage new educators by providing support and mentorship during their first years of teaching.

Teacher Supply Baskets

Each year Alpha Alpha puts together a basket of classroom supplies to gift to teachers new to the Perry County School District. These baskets contain general classroom supplies that are always needed in the first year, such as staples, tape, pens, notepads, and more. The goal is to help early-career teachers with the expenses of setting up a classroom as well as establish a relationship with potential SEE mentees.

SEE Mentorship

Members of Alpha Alpha strive to develop mentorships with early-career educators. Mentors spend time with mentees providing insight, encouragement, and support where needed. Strategies include:

  • Reaching out through phone calls, texts, emails, and visits to provide any needed encouragement and support

  • Assisting with setting up bulletin boards, classroom activities, or creating lesson plans

  • Providing advice with classroom management and offering tips on developing healthy and productive parent-teacher relationships

  • Giving support in practical and applicable ways when needed
