Call Me MISTER Mission Statement

The mission of the Call Me MISTER (acronym for Mentors Instructing Students Towards Effective Role Models) National Initiative is to increase the pool of available teachers from a broader, more diverse background particularly among the State's lowest performing elementary schools.  Student participants are largely selected from among under-served, socio-economically disadvantaged and educationally at-risk communities.  It is expected that a MISTER who completes his program of study and becomes certified to teach will assume a teaching position and teach for one year for each year they received financial support from the Call Me MISTER program.
