Mentors’ Words of Wisdom

  • The Apprenticeship Program provides you the opportunity to work in a hands-on situation.  Your hands are actively engaged at the beginning writing notes as you observe your mentoring teacher.  Next, your hands are engaged in making plans for teaching lessons yourself. Finally, your hands are engaged in grade books, lesson plan books, bulletin boards, etc.  Lastly, your hands are a tool that will touch the life of a child forever.  AMEN
