The AAMU/UAH Regional Inservice Center offers mentoring support for #ALRegion3 educators. Our mentors “walk alongside” candidates to support them “ through the certification process, often starting before the teacher actually applies for certification. Candidate support providers ask questions that help a candidate show evidence more clearly, are sensitive to a candidate’s emotional needs, help candidates create organizational systems to manage the process, locate resources to help with technology demands, and provide models of feedback that broaden and deepen the candidate’s own analytical abilities”.


Let the AAMU/UAH Inservice Center mentor you through the National Board process. You should not have to attempt it alone!

News from “The living world”…..Biology.

Shout out to all the Region 3 schools who have worked so hard to advance their students with hands-on learning. Thank you for the pictures of students in action last year please send them this year as long as there is a media policy on file.. We love seeing their curiosity!

As specialists, we all want to be able to spend more time coaching and working with you as teachers, so please let me know times that I can do this. I am available to help plan, co-teach, work through kits with you, and just be with you and your students ☺️.

You can request kits through Monday.com at the link below. To understand more about them, click on the link below for the ASIM link for all regions and choose AAMU. Kit deliveries are on a 2-week rotation and must be filled out on Monday.com. Please be on the lookout for follow-up emails from me regarding specifics on kit deliveries, delivery schedules, and more. Also, if you have new personnel or know of anyone interested in ASIM (Biology, Environmental, Anatomy, Physics, Chemistry) training/assistance, please let us know.

Overall kit training is help in the summer, but we will be having some training ongoing through the school year. These updates are sent by email, on Facebook and Twitter. I am currently working on some things for our environmental teachers through GLOBE.gov. We are also working on an ACT science experience like math has been doing so look for that to be upcoming.
