As an experienced teacher, you have been selected as someone who models effective teaching and who is willing to mentor a beginning teacher. We hope that you and your teacher candidate will both benefit from the support, feedback, and interaction — the rewards of a good advisor-advisee relationship.
The School Advisor Resources Blog provides guidelines, advice, and FAQs about the teacher education program, as well as forms and templates relevant to your role as a school advisor.
