Module 1- Due November 22

Module 1: Developing a Coaching Menu & Building Relationships has been released in Teams. Check the assignments area for details. Each module will consist of two parts: a learning module and a mentoring application step. For this module, you will need to identify a mentee to work with from you school and begin to develop your mentoring relationship. In order to stay on pace, you should complete the Nearpod learning module early during the assignment window and schedule time with your mentee before the close of the window. Module 1 is due on November 22nd. The graphic above shows the topics for each learning module and the accompanying mentoring action step.

Mr. Kenneth Mitchell

Mr. Kenneth Mitchell is a brand new PROUD Vanguard Member from Lake Forest Elementary. Mr. Mitchell was approached last year to apply to become a Vanguard Member After a year of learning new tech tools and skills that impacted his student's learning, he applied this year and made it! As a new member, Mr. Mitchell took the initiative to facilitate a session on Safari Montage for our teachers' workday on October 11th. Great way to step into the game
