Mentoring has proven to be an effective strategy to retain teachers through their first few years of teaching. Due to the lack of funding of face-to-face mentoring programs, a mentoring program is needed that will support beginning teachers and enhance their existing knowledge of teaching strategies and student developmental levels. This paper proposes a telementoring program which incorporates technology. Additionally, it provides a venue allowing convenient, consistent and frequent communication between a mentor and a beginning teacher. The integrated triad model of a university based teacher induction program was used as the blueprint of the proposed e-mentoring program. Through the application of technology and learning theory, the integrated triad would be accessible via interactive communication at one secure website. During the roundtable discussion, the e-mentoring website will be accessible for demonstration of this proposed online mentoring program.
