PLS-6 Mentoring and Coaching for Every Learner @ Sun Prairie Professional Learning Center | Waunakee | Wisconsin | United States


A highly skilled mentor is key to providing new teachers with a strong induction experience that will advance their instructional practice.  In the Professional Learning Series (PLS) for Mentors, participants learn the critical knowledge, skills, and tools to initiate and maintain effective mentoring relationships with novice teaches that result in instructional growth.  Mentors practice using multiple data points to asses practice and provide meaningful feedback to teachers.  The goal is to support teachers to create and sustain Optimal Learning Environments in which the diverse needs of every learner are addressed with an unwavering attention to equity and continuous academic, social, and emotional growth.
