Mentor Academy 101 is designed for experienced educators and focuses on developing skills to serve in mentoring and coaching roles. The primary emphasis is on supporting instructional growth and development of novice teachers and ESAs, although the skills are transferable to working with veteran educators, too.

Preservice Mentor Academy covers the same content with a clear focus on mentoring preservice teachers (student teachers, teacher candidates, practicum teachers, etc.)

Topics include: roles and stances of mentors; skills for holding learning-focused conversations; strategies for conducting observations, gathering data, and providing feedback; effective classroom management; using instructional frameworks to promote growth; and confidentiality.

Participants will receive a copy of Mentoring Matters 3rd Edition. Parts 1 and 2 provide a foundation of skills and knowledge for instructional mentoring. Part 3 reviews and extends mentoring skills and knowledge. 

BEST will continue to provide all events online until further notice.

NOTE: We’re unable to provide make-up sessions. Please enroll only if you’re able to participate in the full event.

Participants should attend Part 3 at least a month after Parts 1-2. Priority registration goes to public school employees. If you are an employee of a private or charter school, from out-of-state, or from higher education, please email Lan Le for availability!
