Enable the Best Teacher Mentors With Video

Flexibility is key when trying to find the best mentors for teacher candidates

How do you get the best mentors to observe your teacher candidates? Allow them to share their knowledge without requiring them to be in a physical classroom.


Dawn Thompson:

Video enhances our teacher mentoring process. So as Cindy shared with you, we’ve got teachers all over Ohio that we’re trying to mentor and trying to observe. And we’ve got mentors who are mostly retired previous Career Tech teachers and/or previous Career Tech administrators. So they’re really, really well versed in Career Tech education and they’re great mentors to have, but some of them travel, some of them are in RV parks. And this has really allowed us a lot of flexibility and the ability to reach a lot more of our teachers.
