Philosophy

  • Our work as teachers is the most important work there is. The future of our society depends on a moral, educated population. Teachers stand in the greatest position for effecting a positive impact on children. Every teacher can be effective, given the training, support and time. Everyone deserves the opportunity to learn in an environment of respect and integrity. Becoming an effective teacher is a life-long learning process.

The Effective Mentor



Focus on What You Do Best

  • Build on the experiences from a new teacher’s pre-service training, apply that learning to the classroom, and provide new knowledge and skills.
