Julie Haines, GVESC Resident Educator Program Coordinator, has been selected and trained by the state of Ohio as a Resident Educator (RE) Mentor Trainer and can conduct in-person, virtual, and hybrid Mentor Academies. All new mentors assigned to resident educators in Ohio must attend a12-hour academy, and Julie has trained new mentors from districts in Gallia, Jackson, Vinton, and Meigs Counties.
As part of the state trainers' network, Julie will be attending virtual sessions and updates throughout the academic year, working with trainers from across the state to improve the services provided to resident educators and their mentors.
Organizing professional learning opportunities that increase the learning of mentors, resident educators, and ultimately our students, requires thoughtful data gathering and analysis, planning, and evaluation. Through their work and meetings, state trainers participate in rich dialogue on these topics, reflecting on the practice of mentoring, and visualizing a plan for the continued professional growth of Ohio’s resident educators.
