Mentor a Student Teacher

Use your experience, knowledge, and skills to help prepare the next generation of teachers.

Bring your teaching expertise and professional curiosity to the experience of mentoring an MiT teacher candidate for an entire school year. 

As part of our program, MiT emphasizes the use of co-teaching model in student teaching where each teacher candidate is learning how to teach, plan, observe, and reflect in collaboration with you, with peers, and with faculty and community mentors.

What is Co-teaching? While co-teaching strategies may be new to your work with teacher candidates, you may already be using co-teaching practices in your work with specialists, paras, and/or community volunteers! Using a number of co-teaching strategies allows the mentor teacher, the teacher candidate, and the faculty mentor to play active and collaborative roles throughout the entire field experience.
