This training program has been designed to provide prospective mentor teachers with an overview of Emporia State's Elementary Education program and the Professional Development School program. As you complete the training tasks, you will also have opportunities to practice supervision skills you will be using as you work with your Professional Development School interns. Since Fall 2007, elementary PDS interns have only been placed with teachers who have successfully completed the mentor teacher training.
