Mentoring

A New and Promising Form of Professional Development

Focus on: Grades Pre-k - 12
Course Number: LEAD530N

New teachers need help to find their “voices” as they bridge the gap between pre-service training and the realities of the classroom. Most principals, directors, and education coordinators do not have sufficient time to provide the appropriate ongoing support needed by novices in the field. Veteran teachers can bridge this divide, but they need training to be effective mentors. In this course, you will acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to mentor colleagues new to the field. Administrators will learn how to train experienced teachers in their programs to be mentors. We will also explore a variety of mentoring models to discern what type of model works best for a particular setting, as well as how to implement that model.
