Limited Capacity seats available

Mentoring as a powerful tool to support teachers is not a new concept. For decades, teacher mentoring programs have proven to be a vital tool in the growth of those who are entering the field. But then 2020 happened, resulting in our schools, students, and staff taking hit after challenging hit. Districts now find themselves scrambling to best reinforce teachers who were unable to complete practicums and student teaching, as well as teachers who are being hired from completely different career fields, in the midst of staffing shortages. Join Drs. Armstrong and Weaver as they present and give insight into possible solutions to not only better equip teachers, but also to better retain teachers, through strong mentoring relationships.
