Mentoring

New Mentorship Program through MNSOTA!

We are pleased to launch a new program to enable experienced mentors to sponsor string educators in the state, both in the class- room and private studio. Funding from MNSOTA Board will assist mentors in their time and travel when sponsoring a new teacher.

Interested mentors will be required to attend/view the Mentor Seminar that will provide guidelines and review handouts on mentoring. Our inaugural seminar was offered at the MNSOTA All-State Workshop August 2017. If you were unable to attend, this is available to view online (2 versions - same video):

MNSOTA YouTube Channel (original video) 

Zentation Webinar (edited version of video with PowerPoint & index)

Note: some items (application, forms) have been changed since the workshop and video were created.  Please use the forms and information posted below, but old forms will still be accepted if submitted.

The length and frequency of mentoring sessions will be determined by each mentor/mentee. After completing mentorship observations, mentor and mentee need to complete the Post Mentoring Evaluation Questions in order for mentor to receive compensation.

Apply any time; applications will be considered at each MNSOTA Board meeting. 2017-2018 meetings are scheduled for: September 23, November 11, January 27, April 28, June 10. Mentors and mentees will be notified of approval/non-approval during the week following each board meeting. 

Questions? Contact Jane Linde Capistran: capistra@cord.edu or 218-299-4853 (work)
