MENTORING & INSTRUCTIONAL COACHING FOR NEBRASKA TEACHERS

Mentee Application      Mentor Application

Mentoring is a research-based support for the success of teachers.

The NSEA is working to help passionate young educators stay in the profession and be successful through its Mentoring and Instructional Coaching initiative. NSEA received a three-year grant from the National Education Association’s Great Public Schools Fund to help support these virtual programs.

The NSEA can match you with a professional mentor who will help you with classroom questions and concerns.

Mentoring programs not only help teachers, they help states and school districts retain and develop teachers and they benefit students through increased learning. Research shows that students who had teachers with formal mentoring saw significant achievement gains!

If you’d like more information regarding the NSEA mentoring program, please contact Isau Metes, Teaching and Learning Specialist, at 402-475-7611 or email her at isau.metes@nsea.org
