The institution of Mentor is not well-known in Greek educational reality since it has recently been introduced. Many teachers face it with skepticism however, it should be noted that the mentor is not only a teacher but also a student partner. He does not compete and does not interfere in the teachers' work, he simply facilitates and guides them in the increased needs arising in school everyday life. The purpose of the present research is to detect the intentions of teachers concerning their future collaboration with the mentor. A questionnaire was given to 40 teachers of different specialties in four schools. The qualitative analysis of the questionnaires revealed that the teachers are more receptive to a possible collaboration with the mentor.
