2019–20 LDOE Mentor Teacher Training

LDOE Mentor Teacher cohorts will engage in a nine-day sequence of trainings. During these trainings, the Mentor Teachers will:

  • Deepen their understanding of the role of a mentor;
  • Gain knowledge and skills to effectively serve in that role; and 
  • Facilitate the mentoring cycle to support growth for fellow educators.

There are 16 cohorts for the 2019-20 school year of four types: Elementary, Secondary ELA, Secondary Math, and Secondary Universal. Each cohort training session has specific dates and locations.

Mentor Teacher Training Survey Days 8–9

  • Notes for all cohorts

    Notes for all cohorts:

    • All Mentor Teacher cohort meetings will meet from 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
    • Mentors should bring laptops and mentor teacher materials to each meeting.
    • Attendance is taken each day and sign in sheets appear on the LDOE website.
    • Travel expenses are not covered by the LDOE. Please work with your district contact to plan for those expenses.
    • Coffee is served in the morning and lunch is provided.
    • Session 3 for all participants regardless of cohort takes place on June 24 or June 25 prior to Teacher Leader Summit in New Orleans or July 1 at Marksville. 
    • It is important that you attend all sessions. If you have a conflict with a cohort session date, please look at the other cohort meeting dates and submit a change request form to attend another cohort for those sessions no later than 1 week prior to any date in your request.
      • You should change dates only with another cohort of the same type as yours.
      • For example, if you are in a Secondary ELA cohort and have a conflict with the dates for sessions 1-2, you can request a change to attend the sessions 1-2 with the other Secondary ELA cohort. You cannot change to attend sessions 1-2 with an elementary cohort.
      • Changes are made on a limited basis and are subject to space availability.


    If you have questions about your participation as a mentor teacher, please contact BelieveandPrepare@la.gov.

    If you have questions about training session logistics or content, please contact MentorTeachers@austin.utexas.edu.
