Wow! Our mentors are changing the lives of both the new teachers and their students!
Mentor Training in New Orleans
October 3, 2018
Mentors from 2 of our districts (Texas Serenity Academy and George Gervin Academy) came together in the Crescent City this past weekend to learn how to support and grow newly hired teachers, while building capacity in them to effectively grow students academically, socially, and emotionally.
All 21 participants reflected on the mentoring processes, communicating the campus culture, building the important mentee/mentor relationship, offering support, and an overall willingness for both mentee and mentor to grow!
