BEST Mentor Academy 101 (Days 1-2)


Administered by OSPI


  • Linda Cowan


Mentor Academy 101 is a three day event focused on the development of foundational mentor and coaching skills and knowledge.  This training is intended for experienced educators who will be supporting the instructional growth and development of novice educators, although the skills transfer to work with veteran educators, too.  

Topics include: understanding the functions of mentoring, facilitating learning-focused conversations, using instructional frameworks to promote growth, conducting observations and providing effective feedback, gathering data, promoting equitable classrooms, and maintaining confidentiality.  

Event Notes

Participants will receive a copy of Mentoring Matters. Lunch will be 45 minutes to 1 hour on your own. Feel free to pack a lunch and eat in the classroom or go out to a local restaurant.  

Important note: This registration is for Days 1-2. Day 3 is typically held 6-8 weeks later so participants have opportunities to practice the skills between sessions. To complete the full academy, you need to attend all three days. The link for day 3 registration is:
