Dec. 11: GMU Seeks Input From Mentor Leaders
A team of George Mason University faculty members have received VDOE funding to design a sustainable training for mentors supporting teacher candidates. One of the beliefs undergirding these trainings is that the identification of consistent mentoring tenets and the implementation of consistent practices across university and PK-12 school contexts will best serve preservice and in-service teachers.
In support of these trainings, the GMU team hopes to convene school division leaders who work in mentor training for new teachers to review the content of and provide feedback about the trainings. Each meeting of this group would be one hour and held virtually through Zoom.
The first meeting will be on Friday, December 11th, 3:00-4:00 pm. If you are interested in attending this meeting—and/or interested in otherwise supporting this work—please email firstname.lastname@example.org (Dr. Audra Parker) and email@example.com (Dr. Kristien Zenkov).
