Session: Teacher Mentor Training - The Framework for Teaching (Days 3-4)


Completion of Days 1-2 Mentor Professional Development since 2006 is a prerequisite for this session.

The professional development will focus on supporting new teachers and setting the foundations for a successful mentor/mentee relationship.

This session is geared toward experienced teachers who will work as mentors for new teachers.

Teachers who receive effective support in their first few years of teaching are most likely to remain in the profession and become the committed, caring, quality educators of tomorrow. Mentors will receive training based on the New Teacher Center’s Foundations in Mentoring. This model focuses on the knowledge, skills, and understandings for those who mentor new teachers. The mentor training is guided by the belief that learning to teach is a career-long developmental process that involves a continuous cycle of planning, teaching, and reflecting. Some of the key concepts included are the following:

• Creating a Vision of Quality Teaching

• Defining Mentoring Roles

• Identifying New Teachers' Needs

• Building an Effective Mentoring Relationship

• Selecting Support Strategies

• Establishing an Environment for Professional Growth

• Highlighting the Role of Professional Standards in Mentoring for a successful mentor/mentee relationship.

The registration fee of $85 includes materials, instructors, and one night's lodging for those who qualify. Please pay the $85 registration fee online or mail to: WV Center for Professional Development - The Culture Center, 1900 Kanawha Blvd. E., Charleston, WV 25305
