According to educator Rick Smith, being a new teacher is like trying to fly a plane while building it. If you've ever been a first-year teacher, you know exactly what that means. There are times you feel like you are frantically trying to attach the wings before the aircraft goes into a tailspin. All new teachers need someone they can count on for encouragement and support. That's where you come in. You don't need to have ten years of teaching experience to be a mentor teacher; you just need to know some practical ways to help. This course will prepare you to be a positive influence on a new teacher, as well as cover significant topics like cognitive coaching, adult learning theory, and self-reflective practices.

NOTE: Required textbook must be purchased separately.
