We have all had that special person in our life who helped to guide and shape us into our best self. They were there to listen, advise and motivate. Now, you can be that person! The Teacher’s Mentoring Through Coaching Institute focuses on the role of an instructional coach and/or mentor in developing the expertise of educators at all stages of their careers. Institute participants learn the necessary skills to be a mentor coach – including how to navigate the nuances of adult learners – which they then use to help other teachers improve their abilities, build capacity and meet their goals through coaching, consulting and collaborating.
