Where do I start?

Mentor, Coach, Critical Friend

First, thank you for agreeing to become a mentor, coach and critical friend to a new teacher or teachers in MUSD.  You are a critical part of their success and of the districts ability to train and retain excellent teachers.

What does it mean to be a Support Provider?  You are the safe person they can go to with questions and concerns that arise during their early years as a teacher.  The Participating Teacher has to feel that you are a safe person to come to, therefore anything discussed is confidential, and not to be shared with colleagues or the site administrator.  

If you have questions or concerns that arise from these discussions, the BTSA Coordinators (Kathy or Norma) are there to assist you in resolving any issues while maintaining confidentiality. 

For a better understanding of the role you play, please take about 15 minutes to watch this video.  You will quickly see how valuable your feedback becomes to the teacher or teachers you support.
