Become a Mentor Teacher
Join a community of educators invested in professor learning throughout ones’ career. The Bachelor of Education program focuses on theory-practice connections, offers extensive practical experience, and fosters professional learning throughout one’s career. Learn more about how you can get involved through this Start-Up Video.
Mentor teacher orientation sessions will be held at various dates & times in late August and early September.
There will also be an orientation presentation posted online in mid-August.
These face-to-face sessions will be a great time to meet other mentors, discuss the learning goals and begin to co-plan the essential experiences that will be integrated into the full day school visits and Collaborative Explorations. We will also begin to think about possibilities for the scholar-practitioner learning communities during these sessions.
Mentor Teachers are encouraged but not required to attend an orientation session. Please check back here for future orientation dates.
