This is a one-day academy, meeting on Tuesday, June 25. The Madison Mentoring Academy is for new alumni of the James Madison University College of Education. If you graduated from JMU from a teacher licensure program and began teaching in the Fall of 2011 or 2012 then this academy is for you!
Dedicated to affirming beginning teachers and encouraging their continued growth, the Return to Madison Academy will provide participants the opportunity to explore the challenges and rewards of teaching and the delicate balance required in the classroom. Facilitation and support will be provided by JMU education faculty and experienced PK-12 educators.
The $40 registration fee will cover your materials, snack in the morning and afternoon, and lunch.
