PLS-8 Mentoring and Coaching as Leadership, March 16-17, 2021 @ Virtually Via Zoom | 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.


This eighth session in the PLSi series will focus on the following content areas:


  • Vision of Instructional Leadership
  • Change of Theory
  • Navigating the System
  • Changing Toward Equity
  • “I am a Teacher Leader” Stories
  • Analyzing Mentor Practice
  • Goal-Setting and Planning for Growth
  • Action Plan Feeback


  • Identify leadership and influence as the system level
  • Analyze data of practice for Case Study Teacher in order to assess mentoring practice and set goals
  • Use relationships and influence to shift systems toward more equitable learning environments
  • Use analysis of a Case Study Teacher to plan for personalized mentoring


This two-day training runs from 9:00 am – 3:00 pm with synchronous learning from 9:00-11:00 am and 1:00-3:00 pm. This workshop will take place virtually via Zoom.
