In Years 1 and 2, Resident Educators are paired with Mentors who provide individualized professional development through regular interactions with teachers. Mentors facilitate professional conversations with Resident Educators and support them through co-teaching or modeling of key practices.
Supporting Resident Educators
The Resident Educator Program is a multi-year, comprehensive program in which Ohio school districts provide a coordinated set of supports for teachers during their first few years in the classroom. Program Coordinators, Mentors, and Facilitators play a vital role in guiding Resident Educators through this critical time in their careers.
