Mentor Teacher Training Program to begin Jan. 24

An online Mentor Teacher Training Program will be offered through Northwestern State University’s Office of Electronic and Continuing Education and the NSU School of Education starting January 24, 2022.

This Louisiana Board of Elementary and Secondary Education (BESE) approved mentor teacher training offered by the NSU School of Education prepares participants to earn the Louisiana Mentor Teacher micro-credential. The two-course training is offered online on a traditional semester basis, enrolling new participants each term. Courses will be taught by a current practitioner who has earned the state mentor credential.

In addition to the training, participants must pass the Bloom Board assessment to earn the micro-credential. The cost of the assessment is not included in the course fees.

For more information or to register, please call (318) 357-6355. Should there be a group of teachers from one district enrolling, please contact the Office of Electronic and Continuing Education for additional details.
