As new teachers enter the teaching profession, it is mandated that they have a trained mentor. But what does the research say about peer coaching and mentoring? The equation is simple: staff development + practice + feedback + job embedded coaching/mentoring = real and lasting results as teachers aim for excellence in their professional practice. Theory for pre-service or in-service training alone does not produce lasting results. Join us for this one-day workshop to learn more about the mentor’s role in new teacher induction and the foundational skills of effective peer coaching.

Participants will gather the tools to:

  • Assist a colleague with formative assessment of their professional practice
  • Reflect on the needs of beginning teachers
  • Create a vision for quality instruction and professional practice
  • Build a trusting relationship for fostering learning
  • Develop facilitative language and practice collaborative interactions
  • Practice listening deeply and foster a disposition of curiosity in the coachee/mentee
  • Practice reflection in the 10 teaching standards
