  1. provide models and practices to develop key mentoring skills, develop knowledge of mentoring and andragogy, and build trusting relationships with teacher candidates;
  2. sensitize participants in applying a cultural lens as part of an observation framework; and

Participants will be given a certificate of completion for the content of their professional development workshop and pathways to complete/earn micro-credentials with NEA in preparing for a student teacher and engaging in reflective practices as a cooperating teacher.
