Here, mentoring leads to mastery.

Designed to provide a system of support to first and second year leaders (Principals, Directors, Coordinators, Deans, and Instructional Coaches), this mentorship program matches experienced administrators with Protégés. Mentors will meet with their Protégés in their district or an agreed location for a minimum of 50 hours throughout the school year.  

Mentor/Protégé Teams will also meet monthly at Governors State University for discussions and presentations on topics relevant to their practice.  Some of the topics for the new school year include:

  • Practical Tips for Administrators 
  • Developing Positive Relationships 
  • Instructional Leaders and Community Engagement 
  • Preparing for Difficult Conversations 
  • A Framework for Understanding Poverty 
  • ACES and Trauma Sensitive Schools
  • Building Bridges for at Risk Students - AAC#1115
