Coaching and Mentoring for Educators

A Cardinal Stritch University Professional Development Series for Transformational Support of New Teachers

Why Should I Participate?

Are you a newly selected teacher, mentor, or coach who needs training to support educator needs?  
Are you a teacher, mentor, or coach who could use a refresher on coaching and mentoring strategies?

Statistics show that approximately one half of beginning teachers nationwide leave the profession within the first five years as many new teachers feel increasingly overwhelmed and under prepared. According to Wisconsin's PI-34, school districts must train mentors to provide support and assistance to initial educators.
