This workshop is targeted to experienced teachers who want to mentor not only new teachers but also provide support to peer teachers. Teachers who mentor each other are more optimistic, stay up-to-date on new ideas and are more confident because they have support.

The Professional Oklahoma Educators Foundation is offering a professional learning opportunity to develop teachers to work as mentors with new teachers and/or with colleagues. With the goals of retaining beginning teachers and enhancing the effectiveness of all teachers, this mentor training offers coaching and reflection techniques, communication strategies, and ways to identify and prioritize needs.
