Meet The Cedarsong Way Teacher Training Mentors

 

In The Cedarsong Way Teacher Training, there are three required mentorship sessions.

When you are ready for your one on one hour of mentorship, please contact one of the mentors below to schedule your mentorship session. Mentors will respond within 48 hours to schedule. You will then pay the mentor $65 directly prior to your session, and note payment date and method on your documentation form.

You will choose a different mentor for each of your three mentorship sessions. The goals of the mentorship are deeper understanding of The Cedarsong Way, building community, finding out more about you and how we can support you, and an opportunity for you to reflect on specific questions that we ask in each session, as well as for you to ask any questions of us about our work and implementation on The Cedarsong Way.

Please note. ONLY the mentors listed below meet the requirements for this particular mentorship. No other mentorship will be accepted to meet this criteria.

Enjoy getting to know more of The Cedarsong Way community, school directors and teachers. We look forward to getting to know you too.
