Our WSU Project Mentors provide one-on-one support and training for Teacher Education faculty in the College of Education and the College of Liberal Arts.  Our mentors also provide assistance for the faculty in our partner schools and serve as models for the Gen-Y and student leadership programs our grant partners support. 

Our mentors serve in two different capacities.  Instructional mentors provide support for software and technology integration into curriculum and technical mentors provide support for hardware and troubleshooting.

We use a FileMaker Pro Database designed by Patrick Hutchison, our Database Administrator, to keep track of mentor assignments.  The database tracks information about who we've helped, what projects they've worked on, and how much time we spent mentoring.  This data is given to our evaluator for our project evaluation but is also helpful to our college as we make plans for future professional development.

Previous Project Mentors

Our project mentors typically work for us for a year before they move into their student teaching semester and then their professional teaching careers.  We are very proud of our "graduating" students mentors and their knowledge of ISTE standards and technology integration.  They serve as technology models in the schools.
