The Mentor / Mentee Program is the result of a partnership amongst members of the instructional team: Elementary, Secondary, SISS, and Special Subjects. Our primary goal is to support professional learning for educators new to Ann Arbor in order to impact classroom instruction and student learning. Mentor-mentee pairs will attend two 1.5-hour PD sessions together. Notice in the 19-20 Catalog of Professional Learning that we offer a variety of opportunities through various platforms. The sessions are learner-centered and engineered to support growth in targeted areas through the lens of the Danielson Framework and Equity.
