• Teacher Mentor Programs  

  • Our goal is to build a cadre of teachers who will have an impact on increasing student achievement through providing focused one-on-one and small-group support for teachers using evidence-based strategies and the instructional coaching process.  At its core, instructional coaching involves the classroom teacher and the coach examining practical strategies for engaging students and improving their learning through identification and implementation of effective teaching skills.
